Great pattern

Lined it with very thin cotton (batiste) as a facing. Added self drafted sleeves. Fits me perfectly.

Simple

I've made this top twice. The first time I made it with a light linen and the second with a medium weight. The first worked well (I enlarged the armhole), yet it felt a little boxy, so I tried cutting the fabric on the bias for the second one. I was pleasantly surprised at what a difference this made. I don't know anything about cutting on the bias except that it usually make a garment more flowy. I didn't know how to work with the trim on the bias (do you stretch the trim a lot more?), so the back neck gapes a little. Since I was working with scraps, I had to sew a few angles that I'm not familiar sewing, so the shirt doesn't look as good as it would if an expert were doing it. I'm pleased, though. Thank you! For a beginner, this is a great pattern!

Love this top!

I have made this top 4 times. I made it for a friend and then two more times out of fabric scraps. I love that it doesn't take too much fabric. so simple to pair with printed skirts.

Runs small S

I had big hopes for this tank top. Too tight in bust. Could barely get head through next. However, wonderful instructions. Will try a garter size.

Successful

I feel successful with a new technique: binding the neck and arm holes. Thanks for a great tutorial!

I've made 4 of these tanks from FS linen. They are great for layering! Love the bias binding at the neck and arms.

Third try. The bias cut worked perfectly this time. I still need to work on proper binding for the neck and armholes.

Rachel • January 28, 2022

Visible purchased leftover trim (I'll stick with my own from the same fabric next time). Fabric pieced from scraps and cut on bias. I'm a beginner sewist as is evident. I liked the drape of the fabric cut on the bias better than with the grain.

Rachel • January 27, 2022

Thanks to all the reviews, I knew to make the armholes a bit bigger. The shirt is a tad bit too short for my preferences, but it works. It's a nice pattern and a good opportunity to practice finishing the armholes and neckline.
