NOT! For Knits Tank Top 18" Doll Clothes

11   |  

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

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

NOT! For Knits Tank Top 18" doll clothes

Loved the pattern and the instructions were very complete. I did have a problem with the fit. I made this top for an Our Generation doll and had to increase the width in the front and the back considerably. I suggest that you try the pattern on your doll before cutting out the top.

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.
