The Sara project: Panama Tee Dress with Télio
Melody Knit (39112-15)
This fabric was gifted to me from Telio, and the pattern was gifted to me from Indiesew. All opinions are my own.
Say hello to my summer staple dress. The moment I laid eyes on this fun Melody Knit fabric from Telio, I instantly pictured the Panama Tee Dress by Aline Design Co. I love the zig zag pattern and also texture of this fabric. It comes in so many great colors too, but this royal blue screamed summer and there was no going back.
Telio invited me to sew something up for Me Made May using their fabric. I also picked up a few other amazing fabrics you’ll see popping up in the very near future.
I’ve had the Panama Tee Dress pattern for a long time, (picked it up from Indiesew forever ago), but this one is my very first. I sewed up a size 2, view B body with my personal measurements being:
bust: 33″, waist: 27″ and hips: 35″
So the size 2 waist measurement was smaller than mine, but the fit is perfect. I could have graded out slightly at the waist but I decided not to. No mods made. Fit is fabulous. The sleeves are fitted just right, the neckline went in with one try. The whole dress was finished in about an hour. This fabric has great stretch and was easy to work with.
If you are wondering, no, I’m not expecting. Just the result of three giant babies. (Suck it in!). I’m a little self conscious of my middle area and for this reason I don’t normally go for more fitted dresses like this. Although, while wearing this dress I felt so comfortable that II decided I’m just going to wear it all the time anyways. This dress is going to be a summer staple for me. There is just enough ease that this pattern doesn’t fit too close to the body, but just enough that it’s still flattering. I’m really so happy with it with this project.
*GIVEAWAY* Telio has generously offered to giveaway 3 meters of this fabric in your personal color choice. Head over to my Instagram for all of the details, just look for this dress in my grid. Giveaway ends Saturday May 25th at 10 am MST.
So if you’re on the hunt for a simple, easy and quick make for summer that you’ll want wear over and over again, this is it. Go check out all of the other color options this knit fabric comes in! Happy sewing!
