This is my second tiny pocket tank from Grainline Studios. This time I used a chambray fabric which was not very easy to cut and frayed a lot. Unlike my first tank, I made the “tiny pocket” which was nicely curved thanks to Jen’s tip to “try doing a line of stitching along the fold line, the fabric will naturally want to bend there, press and take out the stitching“. I used a size 2 which I think was a bit too tight for my bust but it wasn’t as obvious in real life as it was in the photos. Simon was very impressed with this top and I think this is my favorite among all the shirts I’ve made so far. I’m sure I’ll get a lot of wear from it and it made realize to consider plain fabrics when fabric shopping because I know I’m always attracted to printed ones.
