I’m in love with this simple shell tank top! I like that it can be a stand along top or become a chemise to wear until a smart jacket. I made this for my mom and it looked great on her! This pattern is so perfect for beginners and super satisfying for those of us with more skills. I want to try different fabrics so that I can get more comfortable with them. I’ve been experimenting with knits lately and I also wonder if I can use a knit on this… we shall see.
Fun cotton prints. Beginners will like that you can use store-bought bias tape, but I like to make my own now, so I like having that option.
