Please note that the Dune Set sewing pattern is a separate purchase from Christine Haynes. Please purchase the pattern from the website and upload the AO_Copy_Shop from your pattern file below. In order to protect the copyright of the designer we cannot print the pattern pieces without verifying ownership of the pattern.
The Dune Tank is a minimal & elegant tank top, with bound armholes & necklines. The narrow straps attach to the body of the tank with O-rings & have elastic encased inside, so they won’t stretch out with wear. A wardrobe staple appropriate for wearing both at home & outside, it is ideal for lounging, exercising, or simply worn as a top. The Dune Briefs are a full cut, high-rise modern undergarment, with elastic-free bound openings, so they won’t cut into your lovely curves for ultimate comfort. Lounge in the briefs at home, or wear under your clothes as traditional underwear.
The Dune Set accommodates up to a 57" bust and 58" hip. This is a beginner friendly pattern, even if it is your first experience sewing with knits. We love the Hudson Jersey for this pattern as it is soft, stretchy and comfortable to wear, while still being easy to sew.
Our Sewing Experience:
Jessamy has sewn multiple Dune Sets and wears them both for lounging and out of the house. She found the set to be a bit roomy and sized down to the Xtra Small for her 33" bust and 37" hips. Shown here in Moss & Citron. The tank is meant to hit the low hip but Jessamy has cropped hers and shortened the rise on the briefs (using the lengthen shorten lines). She also used a contrast color (the Citron) to cut all the bindings. If you would like to use a contrast color of the binding you would need to purchase an additional 1/4 yard of Hudson Jersey in your preferred color.
The set shown in Petal was sewn as written, except she omitted the O-rings, which required changing the arm bindings. We also found using our Sewing Clips to help attach the binding was incredibly helpful. They help hold the binding firmly in place and are less fiddly than pinning.
