2 Tanks and a Shrug
I achieved my goal of two SWAP garments this week. I know there are three in the picture, but when we planned the SWAP, I counted the tank and shrug as one garment because that's how they're pictured on the pattern envelope.
The cross over tank was fairly easy to make, it's just one pattern piece that is both front and back. The piece looks like a one shouldered top, but you make two of them and then tack them together at the underarms. I tacked them together all along where the two front edges meet by topstitching along the first topstitching. The pattern is Butterick 4784
The other tank and shrug are Simplicity 4209, and again both items were pretty simple. Very few pieces and straight forward construction. At first my daughter didn't want trim on the tank, but once she saw the item made up, decided to add the trim. This trim is another Wally World Special, a Wright's trim that was on clearance and just happened to match this project. It's also a stretch trim, so it plays nicely with the knit fabric.
Next week, I'm making another t-shirt and one woven top. I wanted to do all the knits at once, but I got mixed up with my list and thought that the last t-shirt was white with blue trim, and it's actually blue with white trim, so I need to go and pick up another piece of the blue knit. It will have to wait until the next week!
