Fall Tank Dress Tutorial

Fall Tank Dress Tutorial

By: Karly Kenyon

There is no such thing as 'too many dresses'! Follow this step-by-step tutorial to create your own knit tank dress for this season.

Here's what you'll need:

Let's get started!

Step 1

Lay a tank top or bodysuit you own and like the fit of on your fabric folded so there are 2 layers. I chose a high neck tank I own to complete this look. You can also use a regular tank for the fit and eyeball the high neckline!

Cut one side tracing your top, adding 2 cm of allowance

Then fold the cut side over to cut the other side with symmetry

Right sides together, sew the length of the neckband leaving a 2 inch gap (to turn through later on)

Push one end inward, line up with the other end right sides together and sew a straight stitch attaching all 4 layers of fabric.
