Hello!

This is a blog dedicated to documenting sewing self drafted and indie sewing patterns, consuming less, being better to people and the earth, creative exploration, and my life and times in Rochester, NY.

Hey Ya'll!

I'm so excited to finally share this top with you. I finished it about a month ago before the Seamwork Veronica was even started. Since then I've been wearing it a TON. It's super cute with a pair of high waisted jeans and a belt and a pair of cute shoes. I love wearing it to my job at Rochester Brainery (pictured here!) because it gets kind of hot in there in the summer.

You wanna know the best part of this tank though? It's COMPLETELY REVERSIBLE. IT'S ACTUALLY TWO TANKS.

This floral lawn is from my favorite online fabric store, La Mercerie. It's literally so lovely that I could die.

Amy's pattern is super simple and a total summer staple. I wouldn't call it a "quick" make though, because you have to let the two layers of fabric kind of settle into each other overnight. But other than that it's super easy. The only adjustment I made was making the regular straps into tie bow straps. I just cut four of the original straps (normally you would cut two) and attached one at each strap point. I saw a sweet black and white tank literally ages ago with tie straps and I thought this was a perfect time to try it.

If I made it again I would probably add a couple of inches to the length of the tank, but I also kind of think this one is perfect cropped length, so who really knows. 

That's all for now folks! This will probably be the last garment sewing post for a little while just because of all of the moving. Wish us luck!
