plus size tank dress sewing pattern 136-062016-2-B

Whether you head to the beach or the office, this casual dress with the sexy teardrop cutout neckline and bell skirt is sure to be the right choice. It is sewn with a wonderfully comfortable double jersey that keeps its shape, even after a long day of wear. Shorten the pattern to hip length and this style also looks great as a shirt! Reinforce the neckline edges with a narrow vilene strip and secure it along the seam with a narrow zig zag stitch. This will keep the seams and neckline from stretching.

The elegance of this sleeveless a-line dress shines through its modest first impression. The teardrop cutout at the asymmetric neckline draws attention without being flashy. The hem of the bell skirt is sewn by hand to give it a smooth finish.

plus size maxi dress sewing pattern 134C-062016-B

A must-have for cocktails at the hotel bar. This long draped dress with the plunging neckline and dramatic knotted look in front is sewn with a soft jersey so it can even be tossed into the travel case without wrinkling.

This v-neck tunic features a flattering drape effect that shapes a dreamy décolleté and the half-length trumpet sleeves that flatter the upper arms, while the width lends the look a beautifully breezy touch. Pair this tunic with jewelery for a great outfit to wear to your next BBQ party.
