Black Woven Tee Dress

Woven tee lengthened
2014 sewing continued....

This is my third version of my woven tee (Country Road RTW). For this version, I simply lengthened the top creating an a-line shape. I also added a CB seam so I could shape the back a little. Prior to this, it was too full and boxy.

This version is made using a silk/linen blend from The Fabric Store. (I showed you the skirt I made from the scraps yesterday).

This dress is a bit of a blank canvas for me as it lends itself to such a variety of accessories. And you know how much I looooooove colourful accessories. 

I have wore this dress heaps. It is so easy to wear so I reach for it often. One more version to go!


  1. A blank canvas. Its a trendy gallery!! Love it.

  2. Beautiful !!!! I follow you for a while now and I love everything that you do with fabrics. kisses

    P.D.:I hope google translate well !!!!

  3. Ooh, I think I need to make myself something like this. Can't argue with a versatile black dress!

  4. This is a great dress and lends itself to a lot of possibilities both for summer and autumn.

  5. I can totally see why you love this pattern - I have a similar one I just want to make in every single fabric! Such a great basic.
