Lydia tank

Added Aug 1, 2008

Akron, Ohio, Uni...






I used the bodice of the Lydia pattern and made the following modifications (pardon my lack of proper terminology):
Sleeves: cut in near the underarm and lower shoulder
Neckline: scooped the neck out and added a keyhole
Front: This was an oops fix, sewed seem down the center with decorative stitch
Side seem: added flap for buttons so I could get into the thing.

Material Notes

Medium weight cotton fabric repurposed from an urban outfitters bedspread ($4.99 for a 90×108 sheet at Gabriel Bro’s).

    Really cool top. Using a bedspead in small pieces works well. Great idea!
