It’s all about sewing the perfect tee during this Sewing With Nancy mini-series. Whether a tee top or a classic tee dress, the same fitting, sewing, and designing techniques apply. Pattern designer Pamela Leggett joins me for the second episode of Sewing The Perfect T-Shirt, this time concentrating on making a dress. Watch online, on DVD, or on PBS.

Once you know how to fit a tee top, as featured in the first episode, applying that knowledge to a classic tee shirt dress is a natural progression.

  • Check side seams for fitting. You’ll learn how to custom-fit your T-shirt dress during the sewing process. Plus, you’ll trim the pattern tissue and fabric at the same time so your pattern will be fine-tuned for sewing your next T-shirt dress.

    Hi Nancy,
    Great tutorial I will be trying this, however my question is, at some stage will you be able to download the app to an android device such as Samsung as I do not have an ipod, ipad or iPhone.
    regards

    I enjoy wearing knits casually and business casual, want to experience confidence with fitting, and use my serger more. This pattern offers everything I want to try this winter.
