|Pattern Description: Tank top pattern in three options|
Pattern Sizing: XS to XL
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I did the view B. I tried another pattern just like this (maybe I found it online for free??) and didn't come out great. So I was in search of this drape in the front top. Some patterns don't have the pleats at the shoulder, and this one does have two pleats on each side. In my opinion, it drapes nicer and at the same time, the shoulder won't drop off.
Fabric Used: I used light weight cotton/poly knit.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Since the fabric was light weight, it was too see through to me, so I doubled the front piece only. Since I did the double, I stitched the top edge right side together, so the unfinished edge won't peek out. On the pattern, it tells you to serge the edge. You can leave it as is since it's knit, but I think they look cheap that way. I didn't turn over the neck edge as the pattern tells you. I ignore this method every time when these "easy" patter tells you. This time, I did the simple single binding where needed which is only the back neck piece. I think the doubling the front piece made the drape better. So you may want to just double the drape area only even the fabric is not sheer. I also made the hem a little straighter. I don't like these patterns make the bottom hem around hip slightly A-line. On me, they always stick out at the hip. So I made it straighter especially at the bottom, I made sure the corner becomes 90 degree.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, actually, I'm ready to sew another one, the same view, totally different fabric. In the future, I want to try all the views. The patterns do fit on me nicely.
Conclusion: I bought this fabric at Fabric.com, and it only costed me around $3. You need only 1 yard to make these tops, so nobody can beat the price.
