Long weekend tank dress

I loved the tank dress on Kate and Melanie but thought it’s not for me. Then I saw all the wonderful makes and decided to give it a go. I made it with fabric that I had, and it has turned out really well. Taking more time to read the instructions carefully and doing a bit every day, I finally finished it. It is still not my style as it is too close fitting for me to be comfortable but I think I will try it with ‘slinky rib’ as per one of the testers on Facebook and I think I will wear that one. (Fabric is active knit, quite firm)

Wendy, it's fantastic! I LOVE as is, but I also often try different underwear for a fitted style to smooth everything out. Plus you can always pair back with the Songbird or Reconnect. You've done a beautiful job. - Kate

Great summer dress

I made this as soon as released. It’s a wearable toile and looks good, but is quite fitted on the hips on my pear shape. I will go up a couple of sizes from the waist down for the ‘real thing’. I’m of a certain age and prefer to skim rather than squeeze!

Long weekend that doesn't take a long weekend!

Fantastic pattern. The most detailed instructions. The pattern is simple yet flattering and the fit is soooo forgiving. The only adjustment I made was to shorten the straps ( and so also the bindings), but that's normal for me. Despite my waist being 2 sizes larger than hips and bust on the guide, I chose to not grade our and I am so glad. This is not my usual style at all but this will be a firm favourite with 2 more fabrics waiting to be cut out.

Great easy sew

I love this pattern. So easy to follow & very comfortable to wear.

The trending Long Weekend Tank Dress

Wow is this dress right on trend. All the shops have them. Kate you have done it again. Superb instructions once again. The wide binding was a new learn for me and I loved it. Totally agree with the fact that your size may need to vary depending on your choice of fabric.
