Buy the Tea House Dress and Top sewing pattern from Sew House Seven. Flattering and easy to wear, the Tea House is a great pattern with a variety of options for different looks. Use a silk or rayon fabric with some drape for a vintage inspired look, while a cotton yarn dyed stripe can lend a more modern feel. The Tea House features a v-neckline with front and back neck yokes, front seaming, in-seam angled pockets (for the dress versions), a back neck box pleat, cuffed dolman short sleeves and two different tie options. Views A, B, and C feature wide under the bust, inseam ties that can be tied behind the back or doubled around to the front. Views D, E and F feature a spaghetti waist tie that threads through a back tunnel and can be tied in the front or behind the back. There are three different length options – views A and D are hip length tops, views B and E are above the knee length dresses and views C and F are tea length dresses. There are no closures to sew – just slip it on over your head and tie!
