NOT! For Knits Tank Top 18" Doll Clothes

9   |  

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 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

Great Little Shirt

This shirt is so easy to sew. It goes together quickly. Great top for summer or under a cardigan in cooler weather.

not for knit tank top

it was easier than I thought it would be. My only problem was with the binding it was rippled after I got done sewing it on. That was probably my fault. I will try the pattern again.

Great pattern!

This pattern has easy to follow directions and is so versatile. You can use your own imagination to make it your own or use the pattern variations. I made this as a tuck-in top and it fit great.

The Not for Knits Tank Top

I thought the instructions were easy to follow but the back finish was a little unclear for me (newbie sewer here). So I opted to finish the back like the trendy tee. The 1/8th seam allowance on the bias edge of the sleeve openings was a bit tricky, but I got it. Overall, it was more involved than other "easy" level patterns I've used here.
