We made our version for our lovely manager Kate, who chose the teal polka dot rayon for her dress.

We took the hem up about 10cm to keep it looking a bit more contemporary.

Louise of Lou Weez Creates has got the fit down on her version. Love this fabric – teeny tiny hearts! And props for choosing a crepe de Chine. Not the easiest fabric to work with but she’s done such an amazing job!

And finally check out Rebecca’s super summery sleeveless tea dress. (Great idea!) And look at that fabric! Bikes, harps, chandeliers, mannequins, wine and sausage dogs! What a combination – we want some!!

You can’t imagine how proud we’re feeling right now. It’s so lovely to see our patterns being made up and you all looking so gorgeous in them.

We have learned a lot from hosting our first sewalong and all the feedback you have given us has been really helpful. These posts will stay up on the blog so if you have been inspired to follow along you can still do so. Get your 1940’s Tea Dress pattern here. And don’t forget to send us a photo when you’ve finished!
