Free Tank Dress Sewing Pattern
This flattering tank dress pattern offers a fabulous silhouette and a true waistline with a cute bow detail at the front. The gathered waistline hides a bit at the waist and offers a flattering fit 😉
When you design yours with a nice draping knit, it is sure to hang beautifully. Choose your style! Solids or prints are great in this style and it’s easy to mix it up by doing a solid on either the top or the bottom portion.
