Sheila will love you right! Sheila is a tee or tshirt dress that is semi-fitted through the bust, waist and hip. Sheila’s silhouette gives you ease of movement without being shapeless – a balanced blend of style and comfort. It really is an everyday pattern you’ll want to wear every day! Featuring a regular bodice AND an included FBA (Full Bust Adjustment) bodice, three sleeve lengths (short, 3/4 or long), and two hem lengths (top or dress) you can customize your Sheila to your exact wishes.
Our basics line tutorial focuses on extra thorough step-by-step instructions with computer drawn graphics AND photographs for each step as well as VIDEOS to guide you in learning the more difficult steps. This pattern is absolutely perfect for a beginner to gain and practice basic skills as well for more seasoned sewists who want a quick sew for wardrobe staples.
