Panama Tee Dress [long sleeve + side slits]

I’m just not going to quit you guys. There are just too many good variations of this dress and altering this pattern is just too easy. So I hope you are loving this almost as much as I am. 😉 The Panama Tee and I are like cookies and ice cream, burgers and fries, babies and puppies — you get me?

I love going through my Fashion Sewing Inspiration board on Pinterest because I try to keep it up-to-date with what my style is and things that I really want to make. I’ve also added patterns that I would use to re-create each thing in the comment section so that I don’t forget. I think that is by far the best thing about sewing — seeing something beautiful and knowing that I can re-create it myself! (You may notice that I recently pinned a few things as inspiration for a Valentines Dress I’m planning to make…) But without further adieu, here is my Pinterest inspiration and my latest creation!

I made this Panama Tee Dress the exact same way I made this one, just with long sleeves instead. It was super easy and I LOVE this dress. The Panama Tee Dress by Alina Design Co. is well worth the $12!

The fabric is a mid-weight ribbed knit that I got in the LA Fashion Districs a couple of summers ago, but there are so many shops selling sweater ribbed knits now, that it wouldn’t be hard to find another!

  1. Looks so good, Tori! I have been trying to decide what to make with my sweater knits you got me (best friend ever!), and I might just have to copy you. 🙂

    1. Thank you, Skyler! I was totally wondering the other day if you had made anything with yours yet! Please feel free to copy! 😉 This fabric is the more stable one of the two. The other one I made a cardigan, but should have sized down because it was pretty stretchy!
