#isewlation2020 : Updating my tee collection : Part 3 : Tee Shirt Dress
I hope you don’t mind, but I’m including this make in this ‘updating my tee collection’ series even though it’s a knit dress!
My measurement put me in a size 12 (large) but after checking the finished garment I decided to sew a size 10 (medium). This isn’t unusual for me as my bust is a size larger than my shoulders. The fit is perfectly slouchy, just as the pattern intended.
With regards to alterations, I did my usual forward shoulder adjustment and shortened the dress at the hem by 1.5″ (4cm).
The flocked 100% cotton knit was from The Cloth Shop (work). It’s long sold out. I love texture of the fabric, but I’m not 100% sure about this colour on me as it’s a little more dusky than my usual clear, bright hues.
This is a super comfortable dress and well drafted dress. In my opinion, simple silhouettes can actually be the hardest to draft as there is no-where to hide. I definitely recommend this pattern and I’ll certainly be sewing it up again next summer.
