And thanks to the Perfect Pattern Parcel I got to sew one up for me :) Though this isn't just any old slouchy tee, it is the super cool Summer Concert Tee by Dixie DIY.
I think I might need some summer concert sunglasses for these pictures. I picked up this vibrant maxi dress at the thrift shop and the summer concert tee was the perfect pattern to give it a new life. I love bright colours, I may still be holding on to my teen years a bit?! Haha. Oh well.
I made a size M and made no serious alterations. After seeing Rachael's version with the sleeve bands I decided I wanted the same. I love how easy this is to sew up.
The back is long enough to cover anything unflattering. I paired it with a simple top to keep things decent in the front.
So what is the Perfect Pattern Parcel all about?
