Alexa T-Top Pattern is the perfect wardrobe staple and I've used this for a summer knit dress! It's great for travel especially if you get good quality knit fabric with spandex.
This fabric is also from Tessutis using their Jaywalk fabric.
Petite, S, M, L and XL.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Well, the pattern is for a tee and I've made this into a dress. Here are the details. Were the instructions easy to follow?
The tee instructions are easy to follow; easy to understand; and easy to read.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This is a basic tee and worthy as a TNT pattern.
Poly cotton with spandex.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I did my usual roll shoulder adjustment and sway back adjustment.
All of my knit top patterns have a shaped centre-back seam that follows my sway back.
Then I added the skirt. To figure out the width I added 20cm to my hip width and placed the seam at the side.
Here are the details. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes. Having a TNT dress for the summer is a must for weekend or weekday wear.
I've now worn this dress in the summer on holidays and it wears well and can be washed in industrial washing machines and the fabric stays soft and in shape. In Hong Kong, with 100% humidity, this dress style was easy to wear while I was sweltering in over 30C heat.
