I know, I know, I said Essential Tank, and then, BAM, it’s a dress! But I don’t know of any patterns that are packed more full of options than Patterns for Pirates. SO, yes, it’s a tank, but you can make this tank shirt length, tunic length, dress length, curved hemline, or maxi length. On the straps, you can make them straight or racerback. You can finish the openings with bands or binding. And there’s an optional front thigh, or center back slit on the maxi. Options. 🙂
I love a front slit, so this was an obvious version for me to sew. I wasn’t sure this would be flattering, since it’s a fairly slim fit, but I totally love it, and will wear it in real life! 🙂 There’s just enough ease to not be tight anywhere from the waist down, and that’s amazing!
Pattern details: sizes XXS-PLus3X. Made for knits, designed to be fitted at the bust, and semi-fitted through the waist and hips. It will be on sale for $7.50 with no code needed! Pick it up and start adding this comfy top/dress to your summer wardrobe!
Both florals: Girl Charlee
