Summer has arrived in full fury and I decided to sew some clothing for the HOT weather. The pattern I used is the Nikita Workout Tank and Dress. I made the dress. Here's an image of the pattern.
I love the swing style, the racerback and the side seams that end at the front of the dress.
Here's my make:
This is made entirely of remnants from other projects. I consider that to be a free project. Right?
This dress is so perfect in hot weather. It was a high of 96 today with a 'feels like' temp of 112 at its highest.
I used three fabrics from Stof. These knits are so amazing. They sew like a dream.
I do like the back. It covers what you need to for a racer-back bra. It doesn't cover it all, but enough.
Here is a closer-up of the front. The bands are very narrow. I typically like my bands a bit wider. When I made another version, I will widen these by about a 1/2". For Jalie patterns, use your full-bust measurement. It works.
Here's a bit closer of the back. You can see how the front panel starts at the back.
I can't wait to try the workout top!
Thanks for reading!
