I can imagine this would look great in most fabric patterns.

The armhole and neckline binding on this pretty knit dress can be a challenge to attach. To have them lay flat, be sure and slightly stretch the binding when sewing to the neckline or armholes for best results. No pattern needed to make the summer dress as a tank top that fits well is used as a pattern.
