Here’s a simple tank for me, which I finished last night.. Just right for this 110 degree weather. I’m a bit behind the times with this pattern, as it was all over the Internet this time last year, but here I finally am.
As you can see, I inverted the pleat from the original and left it loose at the hem. I also lengthened it 1.5 inches, and it could use a full inch more.
The pain with pdf patterns is the printing out and piecing together of the pattern (this alliteration just happened, I swear). Now that I have the pattern all in order, this will be a very quick sew.
I love this fabric. It’s very soft and drapes impressively well for a quilting cotton. I have several yards left – to be used on a dress for Violet and possibly quilt parts for the quilt in the works for her big girl bed.
