NOT! For Knits Tank Top 18" Doll Clothes

15 reviews   |  

Do you love the simplicity of classic tank tops? Does the thought of working with knits make your teeth chatter and your knees tremble?

If you fall into this category of seamstress, take heart and have no fear! You’ll have fun creating an easy top or dress with a stable woven fabric, and learn a couple of simple techniques for a professional finish. The pattern, by Forever 18 Inches, is very easy versatile: you can create a playful fantasy vibe with contrasting colors and prints with the bias binding and bodice, or construct an elegant, minimalistic look with one luxury fabric.

Have fun with the possibilities and start sewing today!

Recommended Fabrics: Light-to-medium weight fabrics work well for this top, particularly quilting cottons and lightweight dress fabrics with a bit of body. Not recommended for heavier satins and brocades. A medium-weight quilter's cotton (or other similar fabric) works well for the dress variation.


Supplies Needed:
1. Woven fabric: 1/4 yd. + ½ yd. for contrast binding (or 1/2 yd. total/no contrast)
2. Matching thread
3. Three snaps OR two 3” pieces of thin Hook-and-Loop
4. Fray Check for fabrics with a tendency to ravel
5. Small, sharp scissors

Optional: - One 2-1/4” x 2-1/2" piece of very lightweight fusible interfacing
for the pocket body (for very lightweight fabrics)
- Contrast thread for the top stitching on the pocket/placket
- For faux placket: three ¼” buttons


Skill Level:  Easy

cute cotton tank top

This is nice alternative to knit fabrics. I goes together easily and looks cute. Fun way to use up small amounts of leftover fabrics.

Makes a very cute top

The pattern was easy to use, but the pages of sewing instructions was fabulous.

Lovely Pattern

I've used this pattern several times now, and I'm always in love with the results! The directions are clear and easy to follow. Definitely worth your money!

NOT! For Knits Tank Top 18" Doll

Nice change to make a T-shirt out of woven fabric. Made it in red cotton, trimmed with white and red maple leaf design for Canada Day. Looks lovely with the Doll Tag Clothing "Simply a Skirt" made with the same maple leaf design. Thank you. Jenifer B
