This shirt is so easy to sew. It goes together quickly. Great top for summer or under a cardigan in cooler weather.
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.
Love the tank top. I'm sure I will be using this pattern a lot.
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.
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.
