A few weeks ago, I came across a post from Kay Whitt announcing the first dress in her new Spring sewing patterns collection, the Tara Tank Dress. It really appealed to me, and Kay generously sent me a copy of the pattern to sew one up for myself!
All of her patterns are hard copies, which I prefer when it comes to sewing clothing. She does a great job with detail in her explanations, and the pattern was easy to follow. This dress in particular is a really quick sew because there are no buttons or zippers, just a drawstring tie in the waistband that cinches up. There are a bunch of different length and hem options included in the pattern, a pleated bodice, high waist, and you can choose to go with a full skirt or narrow (I chose narrow).
The fabric I used is a cotton blend from my local fabric store. It appealed to me because of the border print, and it’s super light, but not thin enough that it needed lining. I’m looking forward to our rain being replaced with some sunshine so I can sew up a few more of these for the Summer months.
If you’d like to purchase this pattern, you can find it here.
