Los Angeles Tank
Added Jun 26, 2014
The fabric for this tank I bought in sunny LA. I never quite know what I’m going to make when I buy a fabric, but I thought this fabric would look better made into an un-lined tank than a lined dress or skirt. I based the shirt on a pattern that included a large scarf/bow at the neck, but once I finished it, I disliked the bulk around the neck. I removed the collar and zig-zag finished the raw edges on the sleeves and neckline and then added the gathers back to the neck. There is a simple hook and loop closure in the back. I love the changes and it will be great in the heat here in China.
- Perhaps another Burda member can help me out with the name of the “stitch” that I used to finish the raw edges. I used a tiny zig-zag stitch, but is that called something else? I have seen the same stitch used to overlock the raw edges of nice silk scarves, but I am not sure what that is called.
