Awhile back I made some knit headbands for my daughter and granddaughter and some of their friends. There was a bunch of knit fabric leftover, and so we decided I should make some little tank tops for N for the summer time. I set about looking on line for a pattern to use, hoping I could find one that I liked for free. I always start with looking at free patterns, and then if I need to, I look at the ones I have to pay for. This time I hit the jackpot!
Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom had a knit tank pattern that was perfect. She had developed it to recycle and old adult size tee shirt for her daughter, but you can also use it to make a new knit tank. The pattern comes in sizes 3-16, I think, It has a higher neckline and armholes for more modesty for a little one. I made the size 6 tank. They are in the mail, so I don't know how well they will fit yet, but they were super easy to sew.
The last thing, and quite important I think, it that I purchased needles to sew knits with. I had never done that before, but now that I have, I have to say I think it matters. I used one for all these shirts, and then put it back in the pack, marking it so I would know it had been used (even a little bit matters) I will always sew with the correct needle now!
Thanks for stopping by.
