With the hottest days of summer upon us I’ve been wearing dresses almost daily, especially my Lotus Pond tank dress. So it made sense to make another tank dress that could stand up to the heat. It took next to no time to sew and already in the few weeks since I made it has been threatening to surpass the rayon maxi washi for Most Worn Status in my closet.
The top is a black baby rib knit from Organic Cotton Plus (I love their rib knit. I also got some natural and mint) and the bottom is a watercolor rayon print from Wanderlust. I also had the good sense to include pockets, something I always consider skipping to save time but never regret later when I add them.
As you can see, it’s all pretty simple. I even skipped adding binding to the arms and neck and just folded the edge under and zig-zagged it down to finish it.
It looks great with my little black bolero which I did not make, but I think I need to try making one of these soon. The bolero sweater always seems to look fantastic with the high-waisted styles I’m drawn to.
