Just a quick little post today. I made this simple tank slip up a few weeks ago to wear with my White Holly Hawthorn Dress. It’s already gotten so much more use then I thought it would. It’s perfect under all my light colored dresses or paired with a skirt. I’m wearing it here with my Shape Shape Wrap Apron Skirt. I really need to make a few knit tanks and maybe another dress with this pattern. It’s super simple and oh so comfortable.
I used my Knit Sloper made using * Suzy Furrer’s Bodice Sloper Class to whip up this slip. I made this out of a wonderful Organic White knit I bought from Kostex on Etsy. It’s a beautiful knit-easy to sew and nice and opaque. It’s super soft-one of the coziest knits in my wardrobe. The only change I’ll make next time is to tighten the underarm a bit more.
Construction wise all my seams were serged and then the edges were turned under at neck and armhole and stitched down. The hem was left unfinished as it was curling under nicely. Quick and simple. I just used the same pattern to make some quick refashioned tanks out of some of my husband’s old polo shirts. I made 3 in about 30 min!
One of my favorite parts of this slip is that it’s wearable either way- low in front or in back. I’m wearing it on the reverse(high neck/low back) with the navy wrap skirt and how I originally designed it above with the low front/high back. It makes it so versatile!
This project was a nice breather. I’ll be back next week with my finished Bias Tube Edged Tank! I posted a little sneak peek on my FB page if you want to take a look. Happy Sewing!
