Hi there! Its Deb of Sprouting JubeJube and I’ve got 3 ladies tank tops to show you today. All this month I’ve pretty much been on vacation and yes I shlepped my sewing machine and fabrics with me. I’m so glad I did because I must say that all the tops I made myself turned out great for me.
You can get the full checklist for these three patterns (here) and also for the other patterns being reviewed this month including the ladies shorts patterns that were reviewed this month. This time I got to sew for me! All tops I made are a size large, keep in mind that my overbust is 38″ and my bust line is 42″. I didn’t make any adjustments to the patterns, all were sewn as is. As usual I’ll start by alphabetical order I do have a favorite but you’ll be able to see that at a later date on my blog, Sprouting JubeJube.
LAVitaly – Sleeveless Jersey Top:
This one is a special surprise! The Sleeveless Jersey Top by LAVitaly is a inexpensive pattern and has a lot of fun features to it considering the price. The purchase price was under $1.50 and there are a few more interesting patterns in their Etsy shop.
Although there is no size chart in the pattern itself you will be able to find all the information regarding sizing in the Etsy listing. All images, finished garment with side, back and front view are also all in the Etsy listing. On the up side, the layered printing feature is a available on this pattern and the insturctions are very easy to follow with step-by-step photos.
Love Notions – HipHop Tank
This tank has a little surprise too…
Just take a look at the back!
This pattern comes with several different options to it, including the possibility of adding sleeves to all views. This one has been on my to-do list for a long time and so glad I got it done. The fit of this tank is relaxed and the neckline hits just the right spot so I don’t have to watch every move I make while chasing the girls at the park.
Patterns For Pirates – Free Spirit Tank
This is another pattern that features a great bunch of options! Different hem lines are available with different lenghts, I made the curved hem line tunic length. The down side to so many hem lines is that it get a little confusing to follow the right hem line for the style you want to make.
The pattern doesn’t have the layered feature to be able to print only the size you need, but they do have the no trim feature so putting this pattern together was quite easy.
All three patterns met my expectations in fit and comfort, and ease in which they came together.
Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time!
