Finally made one of those easy tank dresses...
Missing summer rant over. Point is, I had a ribbed (black and white stripe, though you can hardly tell) tank that was awkwardly/shrunkenly short. So, cut it off just below the waist, sewed up a gathered skirt and waistband of a nice stretchy knit I had, and combined! Voila!
I think the pictures speak for themselves. You get the idea and I'm sure you've seen tutorials for things like this!
So, it might not get much wear this year because I'd probably feel sort of ridiculous walking around in a tank dress, but... there it is. Now I can cross that project off the list and get something out of the sewing room! Always a plus.
What do you say this time of year? Are you ready for black and burgundy and olive?? So far I have NOT been!
Anyone ever seen a dress like this made acceptable for fall? Like a long-sleeved version, or... I can't picture it but it was so fast and easy, I wouldn't mind doing another for the later seasons!
