With over 190 UNIQUE combinations possible in this pattern, the Tea Party Dress will quickly become you go-to party dress! It has so many options to finish each aspect of the dress that you will never get tired of sewing this quick yet gratifying pattern.
Choose different finished each time to create a party dress that is uniquely yours and one-of-a-kind.
The neckline can be created with a modest boat neck, casual scoop front, classic ‘V’ neck or sweet princess style sweetheart look.
The back of the dress can also be tailored to your taste or mood. You can choose from a simple classic back, more modern racer back, show stopping scoop back or beautiful cut-out back.
Another way to customise your dress is to choose how you would like the arms to look - high or low - and the style of sleeve you would like (if any at all!) The gathered cap sleeve adds a sweet touch and the mini cap is a very quick way to add a different look (and some extra sun protection).
When it comes to the skirt you can choose from the huge twirl factor that comes with a full circle skirt or the more casual look of the straight skirt. NOTE: Both skirts are KNEE length only
