Lately I’ve been wanting to wear skirts and dresses over shorts or pants. When the weather is hot, a dress or skirt seems to be more comfortable to me. I’ve been challenging myself to make more of my clothing myself, and skirts and dresses are an easy project. I’ve noticed so many women wearing tank dresses, and I always think “How easy would that be to make?” Turns out, pretty easy, so I put together an easy tank dress tutorial!
- tank top
- about 1 1/2 yards of fabric for a knee length dress, more for a maxi dress.
- 1/4″ elastic, enough to go around your true waist (right above your belly button), plus a couple of inches.
Step seven: Using lots of pins, pin the skirt to the shirt all the way around.
