I am back with Easy Tee V. 4.0 😊Remember my previous uses of this pattern? Feel free to check them out here. This spring I needed some cute dresses and tops to wear for warmer temps so I pulled out the Easy Tee pattern. I love that it fits without loads of adjusting. I only do the basic grading between my bust and waist sizes which is simple and always helps me get a great fit. If you don’t know how to blend sizes, 5oo4 includes great fit advice with all of their patterns and their drafting is really top notch. I also did a 1.5 inch bicep adjustment to give my arms room to move. OK back to this specific dress.
I really want to take a minute to talk about this fabric first. This print is GORGEOUS! I love the bright vivid colors of the floral print. I received this fabric for my April promotion from Stitchin’ Pretties. Sometimes, I really don’t know what I want and this was one of those times. I asked Laura to just send me something. I asked for either 2 yards of 2 fabrics or a 3 yard and 1 yard coordinating bundle. I received 3 yards of the amazingly beautiful Double Brushed Poly and an additional 1 yard cut of a coordinating mauve heavy Rayon Spandex. Stay tuned, that is coming up! If you haven’t checked out Stitchin’ Pretties, you really are missing out. They have wonderful quality as well as super fast shipping. Currently, they have a great Clearance section that you should also take advantage of!!
Now my dress. I chose to make the long version of the Easy Tee Dress. I have also chosen to make the 3/4 length sleeves as well as the scoop neckline. I prefer the scoop neckline in most of my clothing and when given a choice this is what I make. I graded a size 4x shoulders and bust to the 5x belly. I even extended out another 1 inch at the bottom flare of the dress. I used about 2.25 yards of fabric total.
The Easy Tee comes packed with options and here is the run down.
- Shirt, Tunic, Short dress, and Knee Length Dress options
- Hemmed or Band options for the shirt and tunic
- Curved hem option that is in between the shirt and tunic lengths
- Pockets for the dress options
- Maternity pattern piece
- Optional waist tie and breast pocket
- Crew neck, scoop neck, or v-neck
- Hoods for both the crew and the scoop neck versions
- Cuffs for all sleeve lengths (sleeveless, short, 3/4, long, and extra long), including thumbhole cuffs if you want them!
I think all dresses should come with pockets. Literally, it is only 4 extra stitch lines and a few inches of fabric! Totally worth every second!
