Kate Vintage Tea Dress
I don't often wear tea length dresses often so I decided to give the Kate dress, by Designer Stitch, a sew. I loved the option of sewing a two piece, the fitted top and the tea length 3/4 circle skirt. I also added pockets and the tie belt, which are options too. The top has an invisible zipper and the easy set in facings is all in one piece, easier to sew.
The trick to getting a nice fitting bodice, is to sew a muslin or toile, which is a must to get the proper fit. the Kate dress has cup sizing too. I made my top out of a rayon type fabric and the for the skirt I used a peach skin woven fabric.
My goal is to sew a Vintage inspired Kate dress in the near future, when I find the right fabric.
