Willow Tank and Dress

The Willow Tank and Dress is a versatile and reliable warm-weather staple. It’s fitted at the shoulders and falls into a relaxed fit below the bust. It’s unfussy and perfect for a picnic or on an evening out! Sized from 0 to 18, the pattern is nested to facilitate cutting between sizes if needed. Grainline rates this pattern as beginner, with these techniques involved: sewing a straight seam, darts, hemming and applying bias facing. To make the tank or dress, you'll need between 1 1/2 and 3 yards of light to medium weight fabrics, such as cotton, linen, silk, crepe de chine, charmeuse, voile, or chambray, and some thread.
