I used Colette Patterns Sorbetto tank and some of my fabric scraps to make another work dress (comfortable, simple, and not from expensive fabric). I took out the front pleat and a bit more to reduce the ease based on my previous version. I used a black t-shirt for the bottom and a green t-shirt for the top. I have lots of scrappy black fabric and used it to bias bind the neck and armholes.
A functional dress!
