This was a pattern test for a summer tank top for Orange Daisy Patterns. I liked the coverage, and the fact that she can actually wear this to school. It seems like a lot of summer tops are not geared towards school aged kids and schools clothing standards. Strappy tops and open backs are usually a no-no.
This one has nice shoulder coverage and isn’t skin tight on her. She really liked the fit of it.
This first one is before the armscye was raised on this size 14 long. The second one is higher, so it hides her bra. 🙂
This is a lightweight knit in a tiger camo. Tigers need to hide in the woods apparently.
This second one is from a lightweight jersey. Very comfy and soft fabric. The v-neckline went together nicely.
She is short on summer outfits, so I added a skort to this top. The feather fabric is a pre-order at Fabric Anthropology and this is double brushed poly. I added fold over elastic to the edge to lengthen it a bit. I got less than a fat half of this fabric, so I was stretching it as it was!
It is a little heavy for summer as this is a nice heavy brushed fabric, but I figured it wouldn’t be too hot since the flounces weren’t right next to her skin.
