A Girl Just Can't Have Enough!

Pattern Review: Kwik Sew 3844


I literally cannot get enough of this tank top pattern. At the time of writing this blog post all the reviews for this on pattern review are mine!


I finished this tank around a month ago, but haven't had a chance to take some snaps. As you can see, I decided to change this version up a little. I tried this pattern out with a woven rather than a stretch fabric that the pattern calls for and it does mean that this is a tad snug around the bust. I also made this a V-neck style in the front as I felt that it sat too high on my neckline without the natural drape of jersey. 


In addition I had to cut a fair bit off the bottom of this tank as the woven fabric didn't stretch across my hips. I really don't know how I didn't have the foresight to think of this when I was cutting it out. I pretty much always have to grade out a size or two to allow for my hips. It was a definite moment where I kicked myself for being such a dummy. However, I think that the shorter length is pretty cute and I have worn this out and about un-tucked over jeans too. 


I was lazy and used a cotton bias binding on the neckline, and you can see that it doesn't quite lay flat, but I think that this is partly due to the tightness across the bust. I think that with a few fitting tweaks this could be a good TNT tank for wovens too, so I am definitely going to try this again in the future. The fabric is a polycotton blend that I bought from Darn Cheap Fabrics whilst on holiday in Melbourne. I think it was around $7 per yard,

Anyone else been tinkering with a TNT pattern recently?

Happy Sewing!
