The tea dress has its origin in the mid 20th century. The perfect dress for afternoon tea. Now it's a dress for all occasions; work, party or with a heavy knit cardigan and boots for a walk with the dog. This dress is very feminine because of its fitted shape and v-neck with shawl collar. The skirt is flared and you can choose between a butterfly sleeve or a trumpet/puff sleeve. The tiny fabric buttons complete this vintage inspired dress. Use a viscose jersey, a lightweight single jersey fabric. It will also work in a lightweight cotton elasthane single jersey. The fabric you choose should have a nice drape.
