Two tanks for my little man. Fabric used are salvaged and remnant pieces. Made with woven and stretch fabric. Was a little more daring to combine patterns in the fabrics and happy how it turned out.

Pattern from Ottobre Magazine Spring 1/2013

Material Notes

Salvaged and remnant cottons and ribbing

    I know that it is hard to apply ribbing neatly. I wish I could do as well as you did. I really liked how you combined various fabrics, what a good way to use up your stash

      Thank you for your kind words. Personally I find stretch sewing a little challenging and I can’t say it’s a favorite of mine.

      Every stretch fabric behaves differently and every ribbing behaves differently and every stretch fabric/ribbing combo behaves differently when sewn up. I end up sewing up several test swatches with different levels of stretching required for neckbands, sleeves and hem! A real pain! I am sure in industry, when they are able to make many garments of the same type, it is worth their time doing that sort of calibrating.

      Also in industry they have more option to throw their garments onto a seconds pile when things dont work out. We don’t really have that option after all our effort!!!
