Montlake is a workhorse in my wardrobe, I am constantly finding new ways to remix it. It wasn’t until I saw a picture of my Magnolia dress a couple months ago that I remembered how much I love the swing in the hem. I figured I could use the same idea on my Montlake for a more spring appropriate dress for Seattle weather.
Normally when you lengthen a shirt you do that on the lengthen line in the pattern. But since this was a matter of making the tee into a dress I lengthened it from the bottom hem. This allows for the dress to still fit you through the bust, waist, and hips since you haven’t changed those measurement.
