This simple tank dress is body-hugging due to the use of a stretch knit. It has a deeper scoop neck and a slightly longer hem in the rear. Neck and armholes are faced for neat finishing (could have made the facings larger though!).
The dress performed well for comfort and fashion while I was amateur photographer at a friend’s wedding.
