One of my younger sisters is getting into sewing in a big way...always fun to have another recruit to discuss fabric and patterns! When I was holidaying with her, she wanted to sew a tank top, so we downloaded the Grainline Studio Tiny Pocket Tank.
I feel a bit out of step with the rest of the world, because I don't totally love this pattern. I love the styles that Grainline has chose for her pattern range, but this pattern hasn't worked out for me. It seems to have funny drag lines from the bust and a bit of poufiness. I fiddled around with the bust darts, which helped a bit, but it is still not right. My sister is a completely different shape from me, and she had the drag lines as well. It also looks like I should have gone up a size. The fabric is a $5 linen remnant that I picked up earlier on my holiday. I love the colour of it, so even though it was only $5, I am a bit bummed that this project didn't work out.
