A Sleeveless Midi-Length Lark Tee Dress
I originally planned on making a t-shirt dress earlier this season. I knew I wanted to use the Lark Tee Dress Variation Pack pattern because the slim fit of the shirt is relaxed and more comfortable than any store bought t-shirt I've ever owned. However, as it does, time slipped away from me. I was torn between the different style options, especially with Fall and Winter looming. I think I achieved a happy medium with this sleeveless midi-length Lark that will work well in any season. I chose the straight skirt option sewed up in a size 10 that I graded out to a 12 through the hips, and the resulting dress is loosely figure skimming. The loose fit and lack of sleeves have kept me from feeling hot even on 80 degree (26.6 degrees Celsius) days.
The pattern pack comes with a knee and mini length option. To create this midi-length I measured from my knee to my mid calf, and then extended the pattern the appropriate amount. I thought it would be fun to include a side slit on both sides, and chose to finish my hem using a mitered corner finish.
The ease incorporated within this design, means I could have likely sewn this up in a smaller size. While I think a tighter bodycon style fit would look nice, this version will allow me to layer tights and turtlenecks underneath throughout the cooler seasons without feeling like I'm suffocating. All in all, I foresee many more versions of this dress in my future. Have you made a Lark Tee Dress? What pattern options did you choose? Let us know below!
