Easy Tee V. 4

I am back with Easy Tee V. 4.0Ā šŸ˜ŠRemember 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 ofĀ 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.Ā  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. IĀ receivedĀ 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. IĀ receivedĀ 3 yards of the amazingly beautiful Double Brushed Poly and an additional 1 yard cut of aĀ coordinatingĀ 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 alsoĀ chosenĀ 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!

I am a single dog mom of two and we happily reside in a small house in Ohio. We spend our days playing fetch, digging holes in the garden, and sewing, lots of sewing. We have high hopes of moving to the mountains someday. The dogs donā€™t really know that yet, but they will understand. I shamelessly hoard fabric and feel slightly sorry for whoever has to sort my stash when I am gone. I am employed full time in a industry that requires little of my creativity, but basically lets me wear whatever I want. So it works out. I can usually be found behind one of my sewing machine avoiding human contact. I test a lot of clothing patterns and therefore always have a new outfit to share. You have most likely found my blog through some sort of sewing outlet and will quickly realize that I am sewing for a plus size body. For reference, I am 5'1 and wear a range from a 2-5x. Sizes change with every designer and you can't trust ready to wear sizing when you are making your own clothing. Your tape measure will become one of your most used tools and if you misplace them like I do, you should pick up several. I will be sharing the good, the bad, and the A-MA-ZING with youā€¦ So stay tuned. I will also try to teach you a few of my tricks along the way. People always tells me they want to learn how to sew. My best advice is you have to start. Just do it! You are going to mess up, you will break needles, you will ruin the pretty fabric, you will stab your fingers, but you will learn. You will make something and you will wear it. Someone will say, ā€œI like your shirt.ā€ and you will smile and say, ā€œThanks, I made it.ā€ You will race home and make something else. Pretty soon you have made more good things than bad and you will feel proud of yourself and you should. I will be proud of you too. :) Ok, that is enough rambling, I have sewing to do. :) SequoiaLynn
