Tata Nursing Tank

Added Jun 9, 2010

Mountain View, C...






A nursing tank top that looks like a regular tank top, but the front part lifts up while the underneath part lifts down for easy nursing. This top can be worn by itself as a bra tank or with a nursing bra underneath. You can wear it in public or for sleeping in. Either way it cuts the cost of having to pay $20-$50 for an expensive nursing tank. This is not intended to also be a maternity top, but you could easily add length to the front of the body piece to modify it for maternity.

Instructions for Nursing Top, size L (similar to a Motherhood Maternity or Target size L nursing tank. Will fit busts size 34C through 40G. Sorry I am not set up for grading this pattern to other sizes at this time.

Pattern pieces include 5/8” seam allowance.

No pattern layout included. Lay pattern pieces out so that the stretchiest part of the fabric goes left to right across the bust, not top to bottom.

Material Notes

Stretchy 2,4, or 8 way knits.
1/4 inch elastic
1 inch lingerie elastic

    Thank you for this pattern. There are several young mothers and soon-to-be mothers in our area, who would find this perfect during the hot weather we have in our area (TN) Cordially, Nehmah
