The Tea House Dress pattern goes together perfectly. It's such a beautiful design and was really fun to sew!


Love the Tea House Dress pattern, but the facing was a bit tricky and bunches in the back. In hindsight, I should have used lighter weight interfacing and only applied it to the facing since I was making the dress out of a medium weight cotton.
There is a LOT of ease built into the sizes, so I cut out a size 6, even though my measurements were more suited for the 8.
When I ran into trouble with the neckline bunching, Sew House Seven actually direct messaged me on Instagram and offered some helpful advice. That’s one amazing thing about indie pattern companies. Super personal customer service!
Went ahead and ordered some new interfacing from FashionSewingSupply.com for future projects also.
Would recommend using a lighter weight cotton, if you are choosing cotton as your fabric. I may try to make the top version in rayon to see if I have issues with the facing.


I used the copy shop version and had a local shop print it for me. It costs more this way, but I was SO happy not to be taping tons of sheets of paper together.
