And Another Kwik Sew Tank
Pattern Review: Kwik Sew 3844I know that I have blogged and sewn this pattern 3 times, but it's such a good way to use up fabric remnants. Plus I love this pattern!
Seeing as I have mentioned all there is to know about this pattern here and here I will keep this post short and sweet.
The leopard print jersey was again purchased from Brixton during a sewing group fabric shop outing. This time from Simply Fabrics, priced at £2 per metre. As per my previous tank, I french seamed this bad boy for a neater finish on the inside.
As you can see the back is cut out in a contrast black jersey. This was a malfunction on my part. I am actually using the leopard print fabric to make a skirt as part of a sewing group sew-a-long. However, after I cut everything out I realised I had only cut two yoke panels instead of four. So I sacrificed the back of the tank for the yoke panels and re-cut it using some black jersey from my stash. I think that it worked out even better and I'm chuffed with the result.
This top is good one that I can dress up and down, so I am sure that I will get a lot of wear out of it. And seriously people, this tank is so comfortable it's unreal! I could easily live in them.

My next post will undoubtedly be a leopard print edition of Vogue 8711. I was hoping to finish it before my work trip, but I ran out of elastic. It's another tried and tested pattern. And who doesn't want more than one bootylicious skirt in their wardrobe?
