The Tank Dress
from Sew Caroline Follow

The Tank Dress is the perfect summer dress that you’ll want to make over and over. A TRUE summer staple, this dress will fit perfectly into your everyday life. The simple construction leaves room for lots of modifications and “making it your own”. The dress fits to hit above the knee (although there are instructions included on how to make the dress longer OR shorter!), no darts, no closures, and the option for an elastic casing or elastic thread to cinch the back.

Fabrics to use: Light-medium weight cotton, voile, lawn, double gauze, etc. This dress will be gorgeous sewn in anything!

This is a 36 page pattern. Pages 1-11 are the written instructions and pages 12-36 are the tiled pattern pieces that can be printed and taped together using 8.5" x 11" and A4 paper.

    A great design, with a modern styling and lovely shape. Perfect fit, and so comfy to just grab and wear, and still feel pretty.  I would rate this as the perfect beginner pattern, however the instructions are a little lean and lack the detail to allow beginner sewists to sew with confidence.  No mention of when to finish seams, no top stitching information (the pockets were tricky to line up with no instruction on how to get them to sit neatly, and I definitely believe top stitching would help here).  On the whole though, the pattern is nicely laid out and has a professional presentation

    This was a easy dress to sew!   I love it when I can cut and sew an entire outfit during nap time!  This pattern is easy to customize as well.  My favorite part is the hem
