Kwik Sew 3871 Misses Dresses On a Rainy Day

Such a rainy week! But I love it for my garden. So I decided to take pictures in the rain, not the best photos of me but my cheerful dress would show nicely. This simple tank dress from Kwik Sew is quickly becoming a favorite with me. This version, in Tonga Batik City Abstract, 100 % cotton, is my first, and I do not want to take it off. I am wearing it again today as I type!

It is a simple a-line, has no darts, and has a well-balanced scoop front and back neckline. Neither is too low. And it has side-seam pockets! I sew a 14/40 and, after measuring the pieces, traced a Small in this pattern. The armscye is perfect! Always such a relief  not to have to alter in this area.

Usually at this point I would show more aspects of the dress…but my photo session took a very different turn yesterday. Here’s is what transpired in pics:
