Twisted Tank...becomes twisted tank maxi dress

Added Jul 11, 2013

I got addicted to this pattern because it is so easy and makes the most chic tanks. I live in tanks in the summer and this pattern will be a staple. I adjusted it to make it a maxi tank dress…another of my wardrobe basics and this will definitely be a go-to dress for the summer. Perfect with platform sandals and you can belt it .

Material Notes

I think it could work well for prints or solids. If there is a “wrong” side to the fabric then you may want to line the top so when the straps twist you don’t see an obvious wrong side.

    The perfect white summer dress, and, I think it would look as great as a midi, as it does a maxi – Wow – great with your skin tone, elegant, and could be casual or dressy depending on how you style it… again WOW! This is why we go on Burdastyle :)

    Great idea, and the dress looks beautiful on you, as do your other versions. I just downloaded this pattern to make a tank, but I might try a dress as well, I just love the casual yet elegant style.
