Another wardrobe staple from Funktional Threads. The Tessa Swing Tank. I had the opportunity of testing The Erica Skort and the Bailey Baggie Shorts previously, and was excited to test another of Lisa's patterns.
I can see lots of this tank top on Miss 5's wardrobe when summer swings around again.
It's a quick sew. A couple of seams, some binding and you're done.
The shoulders are wide enough to give a reasonable amount of sun protection on days when the UV rating isn't high.
The cut is just right for a nice top that's good for playing in. The high low hem is pretty cool.
There's plenty of attention to detail in the pattern. Despite the change in direction of the hem at the side seams, there were no issues folding up the hem because of the shape of the pattern at the side seams.
There have been a few changes in the way the pattern comes together. The pattern lines have a combination of both different colours and different patterns (great if you bring in black and white). The lines are thinner - less ink. And the pattern matches up beautifully even on A4 paper.
The best part is there is an introductory price of just $1 (US).
The pattern is available via Craftsy
