– double it as a summer top, great worn with shorts
– both dresses’ lengths are great as summer dresses, or nightgowns or for transitioning to fall and back-to-school: think of using an interlock or wool blend knit and wear it above Basic Leggings or tights and a white button-up shirt or polo… fashionable school uniform indeed, perfect for tweens too!

✂✂✂ PRINT SIZE-BY-SIZE BONUS FEATURE✂✂✂
Print only the size you need: no more ink and time wasted! You only need to download the PDF Pattern to your pc/Mac and open it with Adobe Reader… how-to instructions on page 3…. you’ll love it, promise!!!
Print only pattern pages (not the instruction e-book) and save ink, money and some tree too <3 (save the PDF on your tablet, iPad, smartphone, notebook, netbook to keep instructions near you while sewing, and appreciate all the illustrations with perfect brightness and being able to zoom in!)
You can print it at home, all the times you want/need (fit on A4 and US Letter sizes printers!).
✂✂✂ MATERIALS ✂✂✂
knit (refashion some pre-loved T-shirt for frugal #everydaytank) (approx. fabric length needed = top/dress desired length )
knit strips for bindings (better if spandex/lycra or ribbing)
✂✂✂ YOU WILL ALSO NEED ✂✂✂
thread, scissors, pins, ballpoint needles… nothing fancy, your usual sewing stuff 🙂
You can use a serger for finishing your seams (and it will saves you time) but you don’t HAVE to. You can complete your #everydaytank with a simple sewing machine!
