It’s Just a Tank Top…

What do I see over there

Let’s get closer

Yes. It’s Just a Tank Top – The newest of my patterns:

I struggled to find a name for this top - and kept saying: It's just a tank top. So that's what it's called

While I call it “just a tank top” it’s a brilliant basics that you can wear for any occasion. Sometimes the simplest is the best!

And this pattern is perhaps the most versatile basics of all!

A tank top of any colour or pattern can be worn with jeans or shorts for casual wear, a plain coloured or subtle print tank can be layered with a thin cardigan or blazer jacket for office wear and you could make one in a glittery jersey – or animal print – to wear with skinny jeans and heels for a night out.

Have fun using any kind of print – including kid’s jerseys – and use matching or contrasting ribbing to finish the armholes and the neckline.

Talk to you soon! (I want to tell you about the humongous sewing project I’m doing for my parents. Humongous – I tell you. But that’s the least I can do…)

    Yay!! I’ve been eager anticipation for this….and I shall be test running my first one this morning 🙂
    They are super quick to make, and I attempted to whip two up in an hour and a half last night- from cutting fabric to sewing I almost did it. But it means that I have not tried either on yet, but have faith in your styling and sizing, as you’re usually spot on. Hurrah, it’s just a tank, but is going to be well used I know!
