I made all the changes I outlined after my last version. I went for a less full skirt, and made it shorter as well, as that seemed to suit the width best. The two skirt patterns are interchangeable, so I can pick which one I want in future. The more scooped neckline turned out as I envisioned, though it does slip around a lot more. The amount of blousing seems about right. I changed the dart to a side dart...the sides still droop but I think that this is a function of the extra ease from being a pull-on style and the drapiness of the fabric. The fabric is a rayon print from Spotlight.
The mind plays funny games. When I make up something that I have drafted, I ALWAYS can see changes that I should make for next time. Well, this time I was happy with the pattern, so my mind started saying...well, it is just a tank dress, pretty boring really, nothing to get too excited about...I really have to work to keep the negative thoughts away. I like this dress. It is comfy and cool and perfect as a casual summer dress.
