Women’s Aureum racerback dress

I love racerback tank tops, that is what I live in when the weather permits it. Sofilantjes* now has the perfect pattern for that the Aureum racerback top, tunic and dress (Nederlands). It not only has the standard racerback option, it also includes three more beautiful back options. You just want to try them all!
What I really like about this pattern is the different lengths and the different back options. It has four different length options, a top, tunic, dress and maxi length. In the photos shows the dress length (I also sewed up a top length during testing). Besides the simple back option that I sewed there are the drop shape, a 2 piece and a U shape back option. The pattern is great for sewing up basic tank tops, but also for a dressy maxi dress with an unique back option. Even just a great summer dress can be a possibility. This pattern is a must have!

The only challenge is sewing the binding, that is really not my favourite. But after sewing three tops/dresses during testing it is getting better. I did order a tape binder for my coverstitch, so hopefully it will even be easier for all the Aureum dresses and tops that I will make in the future.
