Tea House Dress
Sew House Seven

$18.00 each

Flattering and easy to wear, the Tea House is a great pattern with a variety of options for different looks.  Use a silk or rayon fabric with some drape for a vintage inspired look while a cotton yarn dyed stripe can lend a more modern feel.

The Tea House features: a V-neckline with front and back neck yokes, front seaming, in-seam angled pockets (for the dress versions), a back neck box pleat, cuffed dolman short sleeves and two different tie options.  Views A, B, & C feature wide under the bust, inseam ties that can be tied behind the back or doubled around to the front.  Views D, E & F feature a spaghetti waist tie that threads through a back tunnel and can be tied in the front or for just a bit of waist definition, tied behind the back.  There are three different length options – views A & D are hip length tops, views B & E are above the knee length dresses and views C & F are tea length dresses.  There are no closures to sew – just slip it on over the head and tie!

The pattern envelope contains a full size printed pattern and printed instructions.
