Sew a Willow Tank or Tank Dress

Sew a Willow Tank or Tank Dress

Sewing summer tank tops and dresses is quick and the results are so enjoyable. My pattern drawer has several summer dress patterns - but I constantly return to the Willow because it is both a tank top and a dress. The clean lines make it perfect for my style. The tank top becomes a dress by simply adding a straight tubular skirt to the bottom of the tank top. The fun design in this pattern is the style element of the overlapping tank top hem that makes this dress look like you are wearing a separate skirt. Fun - Enjoy!
