Digging through some old patterns of mine I found this KwikSew pattern (#2286). It consisted of a long and short sleeved top, tank top, and panty patterns. I retraced the tank top pattern in the medium size. I straightened the side seams of the tank top instead of leaving them curved, and added six inches in length to the bottom. I like my tank tops longer so that I can layer them under other tops. The fabric is one of those discounted bin finds at Fabricland that have been haunting my stash for some time. I did a rolled hem and stretched the fabric as I serged so it would have that funky wavy look. I think that I could make some pj bottoms to match.
