Bridal Blue Tank Top

Added Aug 11, 2017

Portland, Oregon...






A friend of mine was in need of a simple, yet elegant, tank top for her bridal skirt, and FAST! I offered to sew one up for her in the fabric of her choice just in time for her wedding day. I downloaded this very simple pattern that is just a front and back tank top with bust darts. She wanted the top to be lined, so I just cut out the pattern twice in the fabric and stitched the outer shell and the lining together at the neckline and armholes. I took in the side seams to be a little more fitted, and scooped out the neckline slightly to her liking, but otherwise made no changes to the pattern.

She loved the finished top and it was perfect for her wedding outfit. It even matched her hubby’s tie by chance and looked great with the beautiful flower bouquet
