I am backkkk! Here is my third use of the Easy Tee pattern in the last week! Can you believe it is also my 6th use of the pattern and I haven’t repeated the same finished garment twice? That is why I LOVE 5oo4 patterns. Everything they draft has tons of options! Believe it or not, there are still some options I haven’t even made yet! This is an older pattern from 5oo4 so it doesn’t include the full bust adjustment which their newer ones include.
So for today’s share:
This one is another dress. This is the shorter length option of the dress lengths included with this pattern. I am only 5’1, but this one is a bit short even though it is drafted for a height of 5’6 I believe. I don’t really wear short anything, skirts, dresses, shorts, tops…I like to keep all my parts covered. I didn’t height adjust at all. I always feel like clothing ends up shorter on my plus size body. I know this is a personal preference and some people have different comfort levels then others. Perhaps if I had done a FBA on this pattern it would have been a wee bit longer in the front.
For my fabric this time, I used another Double Brushed Poly. I told you, I love it! This print is called Portland and I picked it up recently at Amelia Lane Designs. I actually ordered an entire shipment of purple prints. Apparently, I think purple is taking a starring role in my closet this summer. I think I am 100% ok with that! I do love purple.
I actually made this short dress for use in my summer business casual capsule. The idea of a capsule is to create a few basic pieces of clothing that you are able to mix and match and get more bang for your wardrobe buck so to speak. I have now made 4 items for my capsule. Typically I don’t create items with a capsule collection in mind but Amelia Lane has gotten sponsors for some very cool prizes over the next few weeks. If you haven’t joined them on Facebook, you probably should.
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!
