Geo Black Tank


 I've got a quick post for you all.  It's the holiday weekend and I'm trying to get a little relaxing in (whatever I can get with two little boys bouncing around me).  And of course some sewing too.  This top is a repeat and I'm so happy with the results the second time around.
I made this top the first time last summer (which you can read about here).  I liked it however since I was a newbie at sewing clothes, I didn't cut out the best size for me and it turned out a little big.  I was determined to get it right because I loved the style of it.  It's a perfect little summer tank that can be dressed up or down.  The flow and loose fit is great and I absolutely love the opened back.

This is Simplicity 1589 and it's from their "Learning to Sew" series of patterns.  I cut out size 12 this time and it fits great.  The fabric was purchased from, it's almost sold out now but you can find the direct link here.  It's a black and white geometric print on a rayon challis.  I've worn this top so many time this summer: with white jeans, regular denim jeans, jean shorts and pictured here with olive green shorts.  I really would love to keep making more of these tops, but I should expand my skills a little more.  Maybe I'll come back to it again next summer.

How many times have you sewed from a pattern that you love?
