A nursing tank top that looks like a regular tank top, but the front part lifts up while the underneath part lifts down for easy nursing. This top can be worn by itself as a bra tank or with a nursing bra underneath. You can wear it in public or for sleeping in. Either way it cuts the cost of having to pay $20-$50 for an expensive nursing tank. This is not intended to also be a maternity top, but you could easily add length to the front of the body piece to modify it for maternity.
Instructions for Nursing Top, size L (similar to a Motherhood Maternity or Target size L nursing tank. Will fit busts size 34C through 40G. Sorry I am not set up for grading this pattern to other sizes at this time. And this is my first pattern upload so it’s a bit rough, but I assure you it will work!
Materials: 2 or 4 way stretch knit (the stretchier the fabric, the better it will accommodate the larger sizes. A less stretchy fabric may not accommodate a larger size. I wear a 36F and was able to fit easily into both a 2 way stretch version and a 4 way
1.5 yards 2 or 4 way knit fabric
2 yards lingerie elastic
¼” elastic – 2 pieces – one piece 13” and one piece 26.5”
