Description

The Willow Tank Dress by Grainline Studio is a relaxed fit tank top that can also be made into a dress. It's fitted at the shoulders and falls into a relaxed fit below the bust. Bust darts help give this woven garment shape. The tank top has a wide hem and the dress has a waist pleat and a narrow hem finish.

Make a colorblocked dress or play with contrasting prints. Sew up the tank top in a silk fabric that feels luxurious even though it only took you a few hours to make!
