The Pickle Toes 10K Tank

At first I wasn't sure how much I would wear it. The pattern looked a little sportier than what I typically choose. But the color-blocking looked fun, so I made it anyway! And, I'm really glad I did, because I really actually love how it turned out!

**Disclosure: I have included my affiliate link for this pattern in this blog post. If you choose to click on/purchase from my link, I'll receive a small commission from the sale**

This was my first Pickle Toes 10K tank, but it for sure will not be my last!

The Pattern:

This pattern is drafted for knit fabrics. You will need something with good, 4 way stretch. It is a fitted tank, but is very flattering. There are seven length options included (top, tunic, mini, above the knee, below the knee, tea length, maxi length), and two options for the back (regular tank ro racer back). There is a fun color blocking detail on the front and back. I used two fabrics for mine, but you could also use three if you wanted.
My Top:

I printed and taped my pattern, and went looking through my fabric stash. I chose to make the tunic length, because I had this great stripe fabric I got in a scrap/ mystery box that was the perfect size for this! I used a solid black for my color blocking. My top is made from DBP (Double Brushed Poly) fabric. I really love the look, a lot more than I expected! I chose to make the regular tank, because I don't have a racerback bra... you would think that at some point I'd fix that. 🀷 Maybe when we're done with nursing, I'll invest!

Sewing the Pattern

This was a very easy pattern to put together and to sew! You do have a lot of pieces when you cut everything out, so just be organized so you don't lose any! I have 2 year old who likes to run off with random pieces, so I have to make sure to put everything out of reach. 🀣 It went together pretty quickly, and I love how it turned out!

I love dresses, so I'm kind of wanting another in above the knee or maxi length! It's a really fun pattern! I'm also REALLY wanting a sleeved version of this! Maybe our friends at Pickle Toes will make that happen at some point! 😜 *hint hint*

It would also make a wonderful exercise top in some athletic or wicking fabric! Maybe I'll do that one day too!

So TODAY ONLY (05-20-2019), the pattern is discounted!

Free and Easy... Sewing the Agnes by Halla!

I love trying new things when it comes to sewing. I love learning new techniques, how to do things different ways, and figuring things out. For the most part, I also enjoy trying new-to-me pattern designers.

This was my first ever pattern by Halla - the AGNES. Yep, I downloaded it a long time ago when it released, but this was my first time ever making it! I downloaded it with intentions of trying it because it was so popular. It may have been popular because it's a FREE pattern (you can get the code to download it in the Halla Facebook Group), or it may have been really popular because it's FREE and REALLY AWESOME. This blog tour gave me a chance to find out for myself!

I participated in this blog tour put together by Kate of Sewing from Scratch... the idea is that we would all sew the same pattern, but make it our own. If we love it as is, we sew it as is. If we want a cute bow (GwenπŸ˜‰), we add a cute bow, if we want to make all the adjustments to get our perfect fit (Sequoi…

Fun, Fast, and Free - Fresh Looks for Summer!

When I first saw the information about the "Boys in Summer" Blog Tour hosted by Made for Little Gents, I knew I wanted to participate! My boys are the reason I started sewing! I HAD to participate.

But, what would I sew? I contemplated what I might make for a couple of weeks, and then it hit me... it would be super fun to highlight a couple of great freebies! EVERYONE loves free stuff. Free patterns are a great way to try a new designer out before making a purchase, they're perfect for adding some variety to your pattern stash without spending money, and they're just super fun... because more patterns = more stuff you get to make. 😁
So the freebies I'm going to talk to you about today are from Peek-a-boo Pattern Shop. I love Peek-a-boo patterns. I've made a few of them for my boys and have tested a few as well. I feel like the instructions are mostly geared towards beginners, so any skill level can be successful with her patterns. I've really enjoyed the…

Fabulous and FREE! The Neck Tie Top by Winter Wear Designs

I love free patterns, especially when they're by a designer that I already know and love. When Suzanne with Winter Wear Designs drafted this pattern, I was excited! I have not been very exciting with my wardrobe choices in the past - most of my shirts were just basic tees. Solid tees are still nice to have, but it's so much fun to wear something different. Lately I've been LOVING all the fun prints!

I KNEW I wanted to test this pattern, and as soon as I finished sewing it, it became my new favorite shirt. Like... I've been wearing it ALL THE TIME. I really need to make another one!

This is the new free Neck Tie Top by Winter Wear Designs. Isn't it great?

Let me tell you about it!

This top is a semi-fitted tee. You have the options of a solid front or a color blocked front. I color-blocked the front top to be the same fabric as my neckband tie.  The sleeve is a slim poet style sleeve with a cuff. You can either finish the bottom with a band or a simple hem.

It is inte…
