Still stash sewing! I hope I can keep this up. I have been keeping track - so far, I have sewn over 18 yds from my stash and nothing new has gone on the shelf!
Today naptime was trying out this Swing Tank pattern by True Bias. I'm still looking for a simple top that might work with my child's huge head for the Wellen Tank.
DetailsPattern: Swing TankSize: 2T (fits quite well now, and she's wearing mostly 18mo)Fabric: lightweight cotton printNotions: purchased 1/2" bias tape, 1/8" elastic, daisy shank buttonModifications: I stopped the back seam 1/2" lower than the pattern directed, to allow for huge headedness. Also did not do the button loop of fabric, but rather an elastic loop. The colours aren't quite true - it's more of a light lime. If I do use this pattern again, I might cut it longer so I can do a proper hem that will hang nicely. I also did not really like the bias tape facings for the armholes and neck. They did not lie flat - the culprit might be the lightweight fabric. I'd cut self facings next time, or bind the edges.
