Short after the release of the Tea House Dress pattern from Sew House Seven I was asked if I wanted to be part of this tour, organised for Nelleke and I couldn’t say no! I liked the pattern as soon as I saw it, but I thought I wouldn’t have the time to actually make it. So, the invitation was just a push to make it and I am glad I did it! I did the yoke hand stitching part already while on holidays, it was totally worth my holiday’s time!
First of all, what attracted me in the dress: I like dresses that have an accentuated waist, I believe they fit my body type the best, the V-neck and dolman sleeves are also favourites.
This photo might not be the best one but I couldn’t resist taking a picture in this street while staying in Tomar, Portugal, as I love the colours.
Beside the dress option I made, B, there is also available a top, or below the knee length and spaghetti waist threads. As for the sizes, the pattern includes sizes 0 to 20. To celebrate the tour, Sew House Seven is having a sale and you can get the pattern with 25% off, so this is a good opportunity to get a copy! 😉
The option I made was the B, in size 0, without any modification other than shorten 6 cm, just because I am not tall! As for the fabric I used a Nani Iro double gauze from here that I just couldn’t resist. It was quite a treat for me, but well… I think I deserved it and for some reason I believed that this pattern and fabric matched really well. 😉
Hope you are enjoying this tour and getting inspired, as for me I surely enjoyed this tour even before it started. This group of ladies is not only talented but also very supportive and fun.
