The Willow Tank or Dress is a versatile and reliable staple for all warm weather seasons. It’s fitted at the shoulders and falls into a relaxed fit below the bust. It’s unfussy and can be made into a dress or a tank top. Wear it to a picnic or on an elegant evening out. Techniques involved include sewing a straight seam, darts, hemming and applying bias facing.

Her mother was her first teacher, encouraging her in early efforts. Jan further developed her skills through home economics classes in elementary and high school. Although her sewing was originally focused on garment-making and home decorating, she discovered the joys of quilting (and fabric collecting!) about 15 years ago. After retiring from teaching in 2015, she joined the staff at Mad About Patchwork and enjoys spending her time sharing ideas with other creative people.
