Blue racer tank dress with palm leaves

Added Jul 25, 2018

I had a light cotton jean fabric with palm trees printed on it, and I thought it would make a wonderful summer dress with a full skirt. I chose the Racer Tank Dress pattern with an exposed zipper on the back.

The only modification I made was that I needed to “pinch in” 2×2cm at the waist in the front. I will try to make a picture of how I did that.

I have used these instructions for hemming the flared skirt: https://www.thelaststitch.com/2016/08/shaping-flared-hem-machine-ease-stitching/

    Really cute, with or without straps, well for me without but it’s all good, lol! Have a great day, and great dress!

    Really pretty dress and it looks great on you! I had not noticed this pattern before and I’m really loving the racer back.

    You are letting your bra straps show and spoiling the look of this very cute dress. Get a paper clip or a plastic strap keeper and fix that. I love the dress on you and you did a very good job of fitting it.

      Connie Turner, you should be ashamed of yourself. How this beautiful lady chooses to style herself is not any of your business.
