Sew, Fit and Design a Perfect T-Shirt Dress
Dress up your wardrobe, literally. During the perfect tee Sewing With Nancy mini-series, my guest and pattern designer Pamela Leggett shares fitting, sewing, and designing techniques for a classic tee dress. Join us on 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.
Just a Few Tips on What You’ll Learn
- Sew or serge the sleeve to the armhole with a fast flat construction technique.
- 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.
- Learn hem options; fuse first, stitch second is the key for the perfect blind hem.
- Add a designer touch by color-blocking your dress pattern.
