FREE PATTERN REVIEW : FISHSTICKS DESIGNS - THE TANK

I had downloaded this pattern long ago but just got around to sewing it . I am trying to clear my sewing room of all tiny scrap pieces, hence the three colour combo on this design. I got away with making this top with a scrap of fabric 25 wide by 18 long.
The pattern is easy and straight forward . If you are new to sewing knits it still is easy. I used a size 9 needle, a stretch stitch on my sewing machine and away I went at creating this design. To ensure I used every last bit of scrap I took the pieces from the neck and armholes, folded it in half then in half again and cut in a love sign. Knit wont fray so it does not need to be hemmed or anything. I sewed three beads from an old necklace in the centre and there you have it -  a decorative flower.

My model is age 5  with chest 22" . I made the size 2T chest and 4T length. Unfortunately my knit does not have a lot a stretch so her time in this tank is going to be short lived.

The pattern I used can be found here.
But I checked the site today and found out that an update was done and can be found here.
Happy sewing!
