I have made the Aeolian T-Shirt Dress from Pattern Fantastique out of a knit fabric that is a dense t-shirt weight. It’s a great pattern that has 4 different lengths from a top to a maxi dress and can be made in a knit or woven fabric. It’s a PDF downloadable pattern which means you need to piece it together but it was very easy and straight forward.
I really love the shape of the sleeves and it is a great, easy to wear, summer holiday dress. However, now it’s made, I feel I need to shorten it to the knee, does it look too frumpy as it is? Can I be bothered to alter the hem line!?
I just wanted to show off my stripe matching on the raglan sleeve! Yay! also, I used a decorative stretch stitch to stitch down the back facing. This photo shows the colour really well. My Swedish friend said it looks very Swedish, it must be the blue and white, ha!
So what’s the verdict, shorten or not? Please leave your comment by clicking “comments” at the top of the page, would love to hear your views!
