Christine Haynes, Verano Dress Pattern
The Verano Tank is a modern tank top & dress with four views, all with the option of either a solid or button front, for a total of eight different variations. All views are sleeveless, have bust darts, & a flattering scoop front.
View A has a shirt tail hem, chest pocket, & ends at the upper hip. View B has sewn-down side seam pockets, & a shirt tail hem that lands just below the knee. View C features a gathered skirt with patch pockets that hits below the knee, & is attached to the tank slightly above the natural waist. View D is also cut just above the natural waist, with a two-tier midi length full gathered skirt, which has pockets sewn into the side & waist seams, so they stay in place. Pockets can be added or subtracted to any view as desired.
NOTIONS: All views: Thread. For button fronts: View A, five 3/8-1/2” buttons; View B, nine 3/8-1/2” buttons; View C, four 3/8-1/2” buttons; View D, four 3/8-1/2” buttons.
