Swiss Dot Chambray Tank

May 20, 2014

You'll want to wear this chambray tank everywhere this summer. This pattern is easy enough for beginners and fun to sew!

A few weeks ago I shared how my sewing obsession was rekindled. I’ve been trying to sew one item a week though it seems like that’s much easier said than done. I revisited the tiny pocket tank pattern and sewed up this swiss dot chambray tank. I have to say, I love it even more than the first version.

I used Graineline Studio’s tiny pocket tank pattern but made a couple small alternations this time around. Rather than following one side, I made the top of the top a size 8 and the bottom a size 10. This time around it fit perfectly. I found the Robert Kaufman dot chambray fabric on clearance at my local fabric shop for $7/yard. I can’t find it anywhere online but you may be able to find it at a fabric shop.

Use up fabric scraps as bias tape to add an unexpected fun pop of color and pattern to the inside of the shirts you sew!

My favorite detail about this tank is how I used a contrasting patterned fabric for the bias tape. I’ve always been smitten by clothing and accessories that have cute linings. I just love finding pattern in unexpected places so I used some scrap floral fabric I had leftover from making my scout woven tee.

Sew up this simple tank in chambray fabric. It will soon be your summer wardrobe staple!
