I’m very excited to introduce my latest pattern: the Panama Tee Dress. I’ve had this pattern envisioned for awhile and am happy to see it come to fruition.
The Panama Tee Dress features subtle side shaping and a small amount of ease for an easy fit that hits you in all of the right places and skims over all of the others.
With three sleeve length options–short, half, and long–this pattern is appropriate all year long.
View A is an easy-fit tee, View B is a knee-length dress, and View C is an ankle-length maxi dress with a slightly flared hem.
Make it up in french terry and layer it over boots and tights when it’s cold. A half-sleeve version in a silky bamboo rayon would be incredible in the transitional months, layering under a button-up shirt or light jacket. In the summer, sew one up in cotton jersey with short sleeves, and you’ll have an entire outfit in one piece.
With nine possible different combinations, this is the ultimate tee and dress pattern for your handmade wardrobe.
