The Cattail Tank/Dress comes in 3 length options: tank, knee-length dress and maxi dress.  The fitted sheath style flows into a slight A-Line flare making it sleek and athletic looking while still allowing for movement.  The front features multiple vertical panelling options or one simple solid piece.  The back showcases 2 different options: a simple racer-back or a set of angled panels with fun triangle details at the neckline and the hem of the tank.

Recommended Fabrics: 

Light to mid-weight knit fabrics with good recovery such as cotton lycra, cotton jersey, double brushed poly (DBP) etc.
Note: Athletic knits will work for the tank top version, but they are not as well suited to the dress versions.
The maxi dress version has been drafted and tested to end just below the ankle.  When using fabrics with larger amounts of vertical stretch extra length will need to be hemmed or removed.  This will vary depending on the fabric chosen.



- Tricot Interfacing or other interfacing suitable for stretch fabrics. (Angled Back version only)
