I love dresses, probably way too much and I also love
beautifully made clothing. Sew House 7 recently released the Tea House Dress which I was lucky enough to help test it before release. The details in her patterns are definitely worth the money and the time you will spend making it. This dress is inspired by Japanese fashion, kind of like what was popular in the 90s, and there was a lot of thought put into it. The yoke, pockets, ties, cuffs and length options make it a great staple piece.
My version was made in a cobalt crepe in the shorter dress length. I decided to omit the pockets in favor or inseam pockets and also omit the cuffs for a simpler dolman style sleeve. I love the way it fits and love that it slips right on. The tie is perfect for my hourglassy pear shape so that I can accent my waist.
This is definitely not the kind of pattern you do for a quick sew, but I guarantee you will love how it fits and flows and will begging for more in your wardrobe. I find it is a more flattering fit in something drapey like my tester version (a poly silk wannabe fabric) as the crepe does not drape as well as I like. However, it will be worn tons.
