I mentioned in my last post that I have always wanted to sew awesome clothing. Actually it’s more like dreamimg of sewing awesome clothing for me!! Now don’t think that I will be neglecting my family! I will be sewing for them along the way. After all I need to buy fabric, Right? So if I happen to buy too much (lol like there is suck a thing)I promise I will be sure to make things for everyone. But me first!
Today I finished the very first thing I have ever sewn for myself, besides purses and bags. Its a sleevless tunic styly tankish top!! Yes I know that’s a mouthful but I have yet to cleverly name said top!!
I was searching for a summer tank that provided a bit more coverage than the ones I was finding on the racks. Something unique, not flashy, comfortable, not too frumpy….you get the idea. I found a great tutorial and free pattern on pinterest, of all places haha. It’s called the Sorbetto Top
Of course if you know me, you already know that I do not like to follow directions, I just had to play around with this pattern. Not that there was a thing wrong with the original, I just needed to make it mine. This is what I came up with! And I love it.
I added some length in the middle and the bottom hem, gave it a more A-line feel, and played with the front pleat. I am very pleased with the results. I now have a comfy, roomy, hide my yoga pants behind, not frumpy top! And I am already planning the next rendition!
I am all out of cleverness at the moment so please help me name this top!!
See you next time!
