Some months ago the American indie label Sew House Seven released the Tea House Dress pattern. When I saw the first pictures and especially the drawing of the pattern pieces, I was intrigued. The way the dress was constructed was so different. Of course, the pattern consists of well known elements. But the pattern construction is remarkable.
