Last week, we got to test the Schooner Tee and Dress by Jennuine Designs. I love Jenn’s patterns. I find them unique and one of a kind! The Schooner Tee is exactly that, the design is quite genius. It has adorable dolman sleeves with ruffles. The A line tee and dress come in regular and high-low hem options along with inseam pockets. Such a simple and cute pattern, you’ll want a closet full of these tees.
To check fit, I made a top in rayon jersey, it turned out beautiful but for my dress version, I used a ponte knit so the flutters would be more pronounced.
Don’t you love how those flutter sleeves stand out? I got the fabric as part of a destash sale, and love the floral print on her.
I used a coral cotton spandex for the neckband. The pattern includes two pattern pieces for the neckband based on stretch percentage that is very helpful in getting that neckband to fit well and lay neatly. I completely forgot about the inseam pockets until my daughter suddenly discovered them during the photoshoot and that’s about the only picture I managed to get.
Needless to say, its an adorable pattern, and a really quick sew!
As soon as my husband saw this dress, he told me she’d need a few more now that we can actually get out and hang at the park, spring weather and all!!!
The Schooner Tee and Dress is currently on sale for only $5 hurry, get your copy and start cranking them out by the dozen!
The Naples Dress and Tunic was one of the first patterns that I’d tested for Jenn and blogged about it here. I cant believe how much older she looks now 😀
