A White Hot Tank From Hot Patterns!

I made this “tank” from a cotton eyelet material that’s pretty lightweight. I put tank in quotes because it’s not what you would typically think of as a tank top. This pattern is for woven material so it’s an interesting take on that style of top. There are variations on the bottom of the tank so for this, I chose the flounce.

Now the problem is that because the fabric is thin combined with the way the top is constructed, I did not like the look of having a partial facing showing through the front and back.

So, rather than take it apart and start over, I just extended the facings.

I did this for both front and back which solved the problem. I might add that this wouldn’t be necessary with a heavier (not see-thru) fabric. I also raised the neckline on this (as I usually do).

But this is a comfortable, versatile top that can be worn into early Fall depending on your fabric choice (and location). In the pictures above I’m wearing the top with these jeans I made a few months ago (best jeans ever!).

That’s all for now.
