The Ana Tee

I usually sew a more classic style for my girls, but the truth is, my girls ask me more each day to sew them tees. Either because it’s a style they recently started to like to wear more or because they need them for their after-school activities, the tees are getting a lot more use around here.

I suppose this is something that happened with most people who sew, but since I started sewing, I became more demanding with the quality of the clothes I buy and tees often disappoint me. Most times the fit just isn’t right!

For that reason, I was looking for a girl’s pattern, when Susana, from Suco by Susana, had a call for a pattern test and today was the Ana Tee and Dress release.


The pattern is available from age 12 months to 14 years and offers 3 sleeve options. Besides the tee, are also two dress options, so actually you have many options to choose from.


For F I made a long sleeve tee in size 8 for height with 6 for width. I must add that, although the tee is fitted, this version was made during test and the final version has a bit more ease in the tummy area. πŸ˜‰


The fabric I used is an Art Gallery bought almost 3 years ago from here and for the neckband I used an organic rib from here.


As usual in Susana’s patterns, everything matches perfectly, the instructions are clear and the pattern is available in Portuguese and English. Also, until next Saturday, you can get your pattern with a promotional price. πŸ˜‰
