I finally did some sewing! And for myself no less! After seeing many a fab tiny pocket tank on Fake It While You Make It, I decided that it was time to make my own. And just in time for the Spring Top Sewalong! I really like this pattern and especially appreciated the grainline tutorial.
I did have a little trouble with the sizing however. I feel like every time I measure myself for a pattern (and cut accordingly), it comes out too big. I know there are worse problems to have, but I'm beginning to think I have a touch of body dismorphia; or else I just suck at measuring myself. Either way, I cut a 14, started french seaming, brought the sides into a 12, and still find the fit a little wonky. Next time, I will go in between 10 and 12 and attempt an FBA.
And there will be a next time! In fact, I really want to try the dress version next! The fabric I used is a quilting cotton from a local shop. I do love the crispness (and loose fit) of this top for the upcoming hot weather. I feel it will get a lot of wear, even if (or perhaps because) it's a hair tent-ish.
Now if only I could get this gal to teach me how to model.
Happy Spring Sewing!
