double dotty tiny pocket tank
Added Feb 3, 2014
I guess I am getting the winter blahs because I suddenly decided that I needed to make a cotton tank in the middle of winter. This is Grainline Studio’s Tiny Pocket Tank. I love it! It’s so soft. This fabric is so wonderful – it’s a reversible, cotton double gauze. I definitely feel that I’ve been fearlessly choosing fabric lately – making bias binding for this was hard because of the loose weave. I’m a bit worried about how it’ll hold up because I know I’ll want to wear this all the time!
I’ve made this pattern in the past, unsuccessfully, and ended up with a tight upper chest. I researched this problem a lot because I’ve seen quite a few versions with this problem. I lowered the armscye and bust dart by an inch each and followed this excellent tutorial to lengthen the neckline by about 1 cm. This seems to have done the trick. I still have a bit of creasing above the bust but it has drastically decreased compared to my previous attempt. I’m so thankful I found Yoshimi’s post!
