The rain has finally stopped… for now. So I was excited to get out of the house this weekend for a little barbecue with some friends over in the Old Village and to also get a chance to wear my new top, the Together Tank! I tested this pattern recently and I loved how it turned out. This pattern was designed by my friend Brooke of Debbie Brooke Designs. This is her second adult pattern, the first being the My Dress, and I must say, the best tank top pattern I have come across so far.
I cut a size 6 and made no adjustments to the pattern. The fit turned out really great. And the directions were easy to follow and easy to complete. In fact, I completed the entire pattern in one evening from start to finish. The tank styles well with jeans or shorts untucked, but I decided to go with a cute fit and flare skirt and with the tank tucked in.The summers here in Charleston get really hot so I don’t want to have to line my tank tops by adding that extra layer of fabric. But I also hate the feel of stiff cotton bias taping in my arm pit. The Together tank is the perfect solution to this because you use knit ribbing to finish off your arm holes plus it adds a nice detailed look to the finish. the Fabric: The voile was an easy fabric choice to go with for this pattern. It drapes really well and since you only 3/4 of a yard, you can splurge on some nice voile or rayon that usually costs more than regular light weight cotton. I love this print and it if looks familiar to you its because I used the pink and white knit from the same collection earlier this year, remember? This fabric is from the Recollection line by Katarina Roccella and I think she is just so talented. Looking forward to seeing what else she creates!
My hair has been a hot mess lately. One day its curly, one day its not. And then somedays, its this hybrid version that we have here today. Let’s not spend time on this. Just focus on the shirt.
