Grainline tiny pocket tank

Another basic top – the Grainline tiny pocket tank.  And I made it even more basic by leaving off the pocket.

This simple tank has a scooped neckline, curved hemline, and armholes and neckline finished with bias binding. I decided to attach bias to the inside and turn it to the outside along the neckline and to finish the hemline the same way, just to give a little contrast. Around the armholes I attached the bias to the outside and turned and stitched it on the inside, as per the instructions. Once again, I used my Clover bias tape maker to make the bias binding, rather than using the pattern pieces.

I cut this one at size 12. There are small bust darts, which help the fit across the bust and upper chest. I took deeper shoulder seams as a petite adjustment, which worked nicely to lift the armholes, neckline and bust darts.  The fabric is again from Anna‘s stash, a drapey rayon that originally came from Darn Cheap Fabrics.

Next time that I make it I will shorten it – when I look at this full length photo the proportions aren’t quite right. Otherwise, another great simple basic pattern for when the weather really heats up.
