Yikes! Me in a dress…AGAIN!! That’s what happens when your favorite designers both come out with AMAZING dress patterns.

The (affl. link) Tessa Dress by Love Notions is such a fantastic pattern!

It’s your classic sheath dress with tons of options.

It features a contrast yoke that makes mixing and matching fabric so fun.

Multiple sleeve lengths means you can use this pattern all year round.

My teal version is made out of teal ponte from Cali Fabrics.

I did the elbow sleeve, bateau neckline, and added a bit of length to the knee length version to accommodate my height (I’m 5’7″).

I love the simplicity of this version and how versatile it will be to wear.  It was perfect for Easter Sunday!

My second version is a bit more casual.  I did the contrast yoke and sleeves, bateau neck and short sleeves.

The dots are Club Fabrics from Raspberry Creek Fabrics and the floral is one I picked up from two different online sources since I loved it so much (unfortunately it is out of stock both places)!  I used it here too.  This pic is a great detail of the back which is two pieces to really shape it and bring it in.

I love this version and will totally be sporting it just like this on the countless Saturday’s spent at the soccer fields.

As a bonus you can use this pattern with the Sybil Skirt (affl. link) to create countless new looks!  You can read about my love for the Sybil here.

Tami also released a top version called the Tabitha (you can read about mine soon)!  You can pick up the bundle here or the single patterns here and here (all affl. links) on sale through Sunday!
