Buy the Underwood Tank Dress and Top sewing pattern from Sew House Seven. This is one of the easiest knitwear patterns you will ever sew and wear. It was designed with hot weather comfort in mind and is the ultimate warm weather travel piece. This style was meant to cover a wide spectrum of summer weather wardrobe needs – from a swimsuit cover-up to an out-to-dinner dress. All versions are sleeveless, fitted through the upper bust and then flowing into an A-line shape with a deep, curved back neckline that falls just above the bra-line for a little drama. The long (above the ankle) length dress also features long, knee length side vents. There are three options for hem lengths, two options for front neckline depths, and two options for neck and armhole finishing.

Suggested fabrics: Knit fabrics with at least 50% stretch in the width and 20% in length, such as bamboo jersey, rayon jersey, soy/cotton jersey and some cotton knits. Be aware that more or less stretch may result in a smaller or larger fitting garment and you may need to size up or down.

Fabric requirements: Allow extra fabric if matching stripes or plaids or using border prints.

Cup sizes may be offered for C/D, E/F and G/H depending on the style. There are differences between the curvy and standard sizes 18 and 20. The shoulders on the curvy sizes are narrower, the cups are fuller, and the tummy and hips are rounder than for the standard sizes.
