Welcome to the Tea House Top and Dress Tour! The Tea House Top and Dress is a pattern by Sew House Seven that was realeased a few months ago.

The Tea House features: a V-neckline with front and back neck yokes, front seaming, in-seam angled pockets (for the dress versions), a back neck box pleat, cuffed dolman short sleeves and two different tie options.

I chose to make a top with inseam ties (View A) and I made size 8 without any modifications. I think the fit is spot on.


I love that there are no closures to the top/dress and the ties make it flattering and easy to wear. The pattern instructions are very clear and I had no issues. The sewing went smoothly.

The fabric is a cotton lawn from Robert Kaufman's collection London Calling available here.

I really love the fabric and I love how the top turned out, but next time I would like to try to use a different fabric for the front yoke. I think the pattern has really nice and original details that are not enhanced by the floral fabric. Also, I really want to try the dress version!

Overall, I absolutely love the pattern and I will definitely use it again!
Thank you so much Emi for inviting me to be a part of the tour and thank you Nelleke for hosting it!!
