I graded the Tiny Pocket tank up to a size 12 (the pattern tops out at 10) by drawing a line through all the corners and pushing out the seam lines by the appropriate amount.
After I tried the size 12 as is, I determined that the armholes and bust dart were too high for me, so this second top I have lowered the armholes and bust dart by 1 inch. I also added 1/2" at the front side seams above the bust; after truing the dart seams below the bust this addition amounted to 1" increase which made the front and back pattern pieces roughly equal in width at the hem. I love the fit, it is very comfortable. I wouldn’t mind if it was a bit more shaped at the waist so I may tweak it further. I have lots of plans for this pattern! Well worth the $. Thanks G r a i n l i n e!
Uhm…. the “based on” feature isn’t working, which sucks because I’d love to point you to G r a i n l i n e’s tiny pocket tank.
