At long last, I present a tutorial for the tank dress I made a few weeks ago before the end of the semester blindsided me. I’ve been seeing these tank+patterned skirt all over the place lately, but frequently they were too short or too short-waisted for my particular proportions. After some googling, and studying the really excellent skirt tutorial and t-shirt dress tutorial at Ruffles and Stuff and the skirt with pockets tutorial at Freshly Picked, I decided that even my fairly rudimentary sewing skills could handle this project. And since I celebrated my height yesterday for Dress Your Best week, it seems appropriate to post a sewing project prompted by my need for a longer-than-in-stores dress.

Two facts about me: I'm cheap. I love dresses. I wear dresses probably 6 days out of the week.
Guest post by Rachael at Talk 2 the Trees. The perfect dress is hard to come by. I like my dresses to be cheap, and long enough. (I’m not a fan of super short dresses!) Cheap and long dresses don’t seem to go hand in hand.. so, if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself!

skirt to dress (mini-tutorial) My new favorite dress used to be a long gypsy skirt. I’ve always wanted a long skirt with that thin crinkly fabric because I used to live with a girl who looked really cool in her gypsy skirt (Hi, Hazy!). I snatched one right away (P1oo) when the boyfriend and I had our almost-regular visit to the Sunday flea markets downtown.

Short Dress to Maxi Dress Just like my shirts, sometimes I have a dress that shrinks up a bit. Even if I know I shouldn't dry it, sometimes it makes it way into the dryer accidentally. Whoops! Anyhow, that was the story with a little black dress I had. After taking matters into my own hands, now it looks like this. I love maxi dresses and they are big right now.
Versa Skirt Dress tutorial Jessica, one of my wonderful readers, contacted me last week with some advice on how to recreate a dress. I had just bought some striped knit from Joann’s on clearance with the intent to make…something. Maybe a skirt. I didn’t really know. After I got her email, I knew I had to use it for her dress.
