Here we have it, my first downloadable pattern, the Tiny Pocket Tank! I originally designed this top last summer when I had some extra cotton chambray at my disposal and it quickly became one of my favorite tops (here’s the original). This version is made up in a printed cotton + silk blend which has a slightly fancier feel, due to both the print and the slight sheen from the silk content, than the original top. I’m pretty pumped about this one and have already put it to use. I finished it late Saturday night, I don’t waste any time, haha. It looks great on it’s own or layered with cardigans or blazers, aside from my bad hair day.
Here are the pattern details:
Description : A great basic top for spring and summer which does double duty as a layering piece in fall and winter.

consists of two files (pattern + instructions) zipped together and is formatted to print at home on US Letter sized paper (8.5” x 11”). The instructions feature black and white technical illustrations instead of photographs for clarity as well as to save on printer ink. I will be posting a photographic step by step on the blog as well in case you need more clarity with less ink waste.
I also wanted to include the size chart here…all the sizes are nested, as most sewing patterns are, so that you can blend between sizes if needed.
