|Perfect Tank Pamela's Patterns|
|raising the armscye for more coverage|
I wore it last week with a jacket I made a few years ago that needed a gray tank underneath it. It sews up easily although I think next time I will move the strap location 1/2" further in towards the middle of my back since that's a very narrow spot on my body. I also might consider some very lightweight knit interfacing on the facings and straps to give them just a touch more body and firmness. I think this pattern has wonderful possibilities as a lovely knit nightie as well or maybe in some silk stretch charmeuse that I have in my collection. Another good investment from this great pattern company.
I have a few more lace and slinky combinations in my collection, one in maroon and one in dark olive greens. I think I might lengthen the top and make one of those into a knee length dress. Keep reading and watching to see if I get to that project this year.
Now for an entirely different view of things:
