This pattern is beautiful and the silhouette is great, but the armholes are TINY!! So make sure that you increase the scythe so that they fit your arms. I found it a little tight across the chest so you might want to add some in there too.
Used this pattern to make 2 tanks from scraps from printed linen projects. One project is a solid front piece and a back piece that has a seam down the middle. The second was four pieces, seams down the middle both front and back. I liked the fit so much I used it to correct the top of 2 dresses I had made with ill-fitting cap sleeves. Thanks for the pattern! xx
Hello, I'm able to open correctly in Adobe reader, I select the sizes I want to use, and then after I print it only prints one of the selected sizes. I've tested a few times and not all the sizes are printed...can you help me?
I made 2 tank top from scraps I had. I just added allowance for inseam down the middle of the front on one and front and back for the other. Loved the look so much I used it to correct 2 cap sleeve dresses I had made whose tops were ill-fitting! Thank you for your free patterns xo
I ordered the NICO pattern, and downloaded this tank pattern in the interim. I thought I'd make a toile out of cotton fabric I had laying around to check how the pattern fits. It was SO easy. I ended up finishing the toile, which turned out beautifully and I'm already planning the next tank - there are so many possibilities!
I made 2 tanks with different colors from this pattern. Planning to make a third one. Easy to understand tutorial, even for a beginner sewers. I love wearing them to work (It's summer here in Melbourne) and out (style with a pair of high waist jeans). Thank you so much xx
Easy to sew, easy to wear, exactly the kind of top I like :) A great method for finishing the neck and armholes with bias binding. I added a hi lo hem and side splits. I will definitely make more!
Thank you for providing this wonderful pattern. This is my first time making one of your patterns and I purchased some of your medium weight softened linen for it. I love the results, so I made the boxy tee shirt top next so I would be able to wear this linen more often. I was searching for such cool patterns and beautiful fabrics like these, so your site is a dream come true! Thanks again, I really appreciate it.
Wonderful pattern for a beginner. Well explained with step-by-step instructions that were clear. The pictures certainly helped for a novice. Up to date software helps when downloading this pattern.
Downloaded this pattern, but there's no pattern..
Good afternoon - the pattern is included as an attached file to the main PDF. To access the attached file. In the Adobe menu click View - Show/Hide- Navigation panes - Attachments. Adobe will pop open a side panel with the attached file. I sent you an email with pictures of the steps. Email me if you have any questions and have a great day.
Unable to open this file in Adobe Reader. Followed the instructions to a T but did not work.
Good afternoon - I am sorry to hear you aren't able to get to the pattern. Please call us 866-620-2008 or email at email@example.com and let me know what step you are on. I will be able to walk you through how to get to the pattern. Have a great day.
I made three muslin mockups on this pattern trying to make it work with a body that actually has breasts, and finally I quit. Not even an FBA got it working correctly. The armscye is drafted ludicrously large and continued to gape no matter what I did. It's obvious the pattern designer has no experience on adjusting patterns for anything larger than a small frame with a B-cup.
I love the pants, too. Is that pattern also available?
all your models are fabulous. I would like to know if the seam allowances are included in the pattern or not. Thank you
I downloaded this pattern today and I am almost done with it. Love that finished measurements were included. I am not the best at altering patterns to fit but with this pattern it was easy and it fits perfectly. I will be making this many times. I see so many possibilities with this pattern and I cannot wait to try many of them. This shirt does finish up short-perfect for me because I am only 5'1". Thank you for the pattern.
A lovely little top! I just made this tank over the weekend and will be wearing it soon. I'm a beginner who had never done this style of binding on the neck and arms, but the tutorials and photos made the whole process quite straightforward. I decided to use French seams on the shoulders and sides for a cleaner finish, and I'm quite happy with that change (just add a bit extra to the seam allowances to compensate). I had a slight issue with the fit being tight across the chest and high under my arms when I first tried it on (before binding the arm holes), but it was easy enough to cut the arms a little deeper to make it fall right. I would say it fits a bit on the smaller/shorter side, but I'm also fairly tall with broad shoulders. I'll definitely be using this pattern again as a starting point for other tops. Thank you!
This is a great pattern for a beginner... I love the hacks on you blog The Thread. I made a muslin for the tank and the Morocco pants. They are both wearable garments & I did not need to make any changes other then initially I graded up for my hips! Thank you !
This is a great little top. It's easy to sew - a great project for someone getting back into sewing after decades - and the style is very flattering even on my 64 year old body! I re-purposed a chambray linen sun dress that I bought online. The dress, unfortuantely, looked like a hospital gown on me and I didn't want to fabric to go to waste. I bought two of those sun dresses and, now that I know what I'm doing, will make another top out of the second one. I will be sizing up as the first top is very tight, although I'm able to wear it around the house without a bra. This is entirely my fault and has nothing to do with the pattern or design. I did not double check my measurments against the pattern measurments and made what I thought was my size. Yeah...my size 10 years ago. That was a stupid mistake which I'll not make again. Once I complete the second go-round and confirm its size and fit, I have some beautiful Fabric Store linen that I will use for the final version.
Finally figured it out...I had a "DUH" moment I guess...
I have downloaded and printed 2 of the other patterns.. really want this linen tank pattern so I downloaded it the same way as the other 2, opened it the same way as the others with your download of adobe and there are no pattern pieces only the 1st-4 pages.. I deleted from my computer, re-downloaded, still nothing....Can someone help PLEASE...
This is a great staple for any wardrobe. I do think it runs a little small though, just a heads up. :) So Happy to see the patterns available again!
Melanie figured it out, and the company should update all instruction sheets accordingly to avoid further complaints. YOU MUST FIRST TELL ACROBAT READER TO VIEW ATTACHMENTS. Only then will you see the file in the ATTACHMENTS PANE next to the PAPER CLIP icon. You will NOT see it in the layers pane yet!!! YOU MUST DOUBLE CLICK THE FILE IN THE ATTACHMENTS pane next to the PAPERCLIP to see the printable LAYERS. The Navigation Pane is built like a cream-filled cake: the Title Page is the frosting, the Attachment (paper clip) is the cake, and Layers is the filling. Start at the top and work your way down. ......................................................................... Dear Company Owner, delete the line on the first page of the PDF that says, ....the included files and size layers... and just say ATTACHMENT. That is the Adobe word for what we are looking for!! Also delete the Helpful Tip to press F4 because it is not helpful! F4 closes the application on my European keyboard!! Finally, edit the last line to say: In the drop-down menu, select: View > Show/HIDE > Navigation PANES > ATTACHMENTS.................It is not enough to tell customers to just open it in Adobe and view navigation panes! I have used Adobe products for 30 years and the hiding of layers is a new thing, and it WILL cause grief for many until you walk through each step yourself, as with patterning, and be exact with the use of your terms and order of steps to take.
I am not handy enough to create my own pattern so I am very grateful for the ones you provide. This pattern is perfect: casual and easy to make. I cheat and do not make bias tape, but just finish edges with a simple rolled edge. The swing blouse pattern I made, from the same size, 4/6, was way too bulky on me, but my daughter looks great in it. Wanting to have a blouse with that swing ruffle look, I cut this pattern out in a cropped length, cut the ruffle piece from the swing blouse pattern (I added 3" of length to it) and made a similar look that I am very happy with.
I understand I have to have Adobe to open this file ( which I have, latest version) but I am using an IPad and can't seem to download to Adobe? Very frustrated as I have bought the material AND have time set aside to make it!
If you are having trouble understanding how to open/view/print this free PDF pattern using the Adobe Reader program, please kindly consider contacting customer service before rating the pattern. To ensure you are opening the pattern in Adobe Reader, it is best to first launch the program and then File:Open your desired PDF file. All printable pages are included in "attachments" with a convenient single download. Just "double-clicking" on a PDF file will not guarantee it is opening in the full Adobe Reader program and you may just get a limited functioning "preview".
I love the patterns from Fabrics-Store.com, but even after following all the directions to the letter, still no pattern. If only I had this one, my record could be 100% excellent.
this is the second time I have tried to download this pattern, but only get the 4 pages of the download no pattern file. since I am not the only one having this problem, could you please let us all know how to access the pattern. it looks lovely and I would love to get the pattern. thank you
I 'copied' this file to Adobe and then clicked on the paper clip (attachment) to view the pages of pattern pieces. Can't wait to try.
Some people having trouble finding pattern pieces. The pattern pieces are attached to the original document as an attachment. If you've got the most recent version of Adobe Acrobat Reader, you need to go to the View menu, to Show/Hide to Navigation Panes, and select Attachments, then on the right hand side in the Attachments Pane click on the Paperclip icon if necessary, and select the file named "Linen Tank Pattern." I had no problem locating and printing out the pattern pieces.
There is no pattern to download. Only 4 pages of pictures sizing chart and a thank you page. Hope something can be done so we can download the pattern even the latest adobe reader,
Forget previous review...realised I was using a new laptop and had to re download the Adobe app. All good now. :-)
There seems to be no actual pattern attached to this download, only a 4 page thankyou with pretty pictures of the garment and sizing chart.????
I was not able to download and print pattern even after installing version of Adobe Reader recommended. Would love to make this top. Help!!
I used the Natural linen, medium weight, softened. Lengthened pattern to make into a tunic. Added patch pockets and hand embroidered details. Matching palazzo pants. This took only 2 yards! (And just a bit more for the self bias trim) Enjoyed every minute of this project. Thank you for your great products. Linen of very good quality and love the patterns!
IMPORTANT: Per the first page of the PDF download, the file must be opened with Adobe Reader to access the attached printable pages. Web browsers and third-party readers are only "previews" and limited in functionality. Adobe Reader is free and works reliably with all devices and platforms. Happy sewing!
