First time I made it was a disaster. I wasn't used to working with knits and I stretched the neck and armband so much it was a complete mess. But I didn't give up and tried it again now slowly trying not to stretch the arm and neckband too much. It went to well that it now looks like my daughter's uniform. She has it in different colors and wears it to contemporary dance class. She loves it. I would love to see more crop top style patterns for teens/ adults

This pattern was so simple, and clear!!! I don't recommend using rayon spandex for a Maxi. But the pattern was so quick!! 3 seams and 3 bands/bindings. And if you don't want a seam down the back just cut on fold, it does use a bit more fabric. Also if you don't like high necklines just scoop out a bit more on the front bodice cut line. And I sewed my whole dress on my regular machine with a zigzag stitch!!! Have fun!
Seriously this pattern is getting me through the summer. It is so simple to make, but yet so beautiful. I have made 5 (all different from one another) and have 2 more cut. It's the perfect tank or dress for these hot summer days.
