Willow Tank & Dress in Sizes 14 – 32
Today we're excited to release the Willow Tank & Dress in PDF in our 14 – 32 D-Cup size range! To celebrate the launch we’re offering 20% the Willow now through January 22nd, 2023, no code needed.
The tank version of the Willow has a modern mid-hip length and a higher neckline to balance the shorter length. The fit is slightly boxy from the waist down but bust darts keep it fitted through the shoulders and bust. We also included a deep turned up hem to add a polished finished edge to the tank, as well as create the pleat you see in the dress version.
The dress version of the Willow is the perfect dress for kicking around town. Since it’s loose fitting it won’t stick to you in the heat of summer, but it’s also great with tights and a cardigan. The dress pattern is two pieces so that leaves the option to use two different fabrics for the top and skirt – great for coordinating prints and solids!
The 14-32 Willow was drafted from our custom 14-32 block (see our size chart here), just like the rest of our patterns in that size range. Rather than simply drafting our 0-18 block up to a 32, this pattern fits like it was drafted specifically for you...because it was!
The Willow is rated for beginners but is also great for more experienced sewers who are looking for a super wearable, easy project or want to do some customization. Techniques involved include sewing a straight seam, darts, hemming, and applying bias facings.
