If you haven’t tried sewing with IL041, I’d recommend checking it out. It is a lot different from the other linen we offer. I just love how it looks and feels. It’s almost like a thickly woven gauze. This tank top design is ridiculously simple, but stands out because of this unique fabric. Take a look at all the colors to see what you like! See more IL041 Linen >>
Begin by cutting your two pieces of linen. Use your pattern to cut a piece for the front and back of the tank top.
Hem the edges around the neck and arm holes first.
A simple 1/2 inch hem is all you need to sew for these edges.
Then sew the straps together.
This how all the 1/2 inch hems should look like on the outside of your tank top.
The inside of the hems looks just like this. These hems finish all the edges and are the trickiest part of this tank top. Not very tricky, right? That’s exactly why this is so easy to sew!
This is the outside of the side seam and the hem along the bottom. Simple and clean.
My advice- throw this linen into the washer and dryer as soon as you get it delivered. When you pull it out of the dryer, it is so soft and beautiful! This same tank top is fine in cotton or other fabrics, but with this linen it becomes something so much more stylish.
I can’t wait to wear my tank top. This Winter has been extremely mild and it seems like Spring will just blend into Summer. Which is a good if you plan on making more linen clothing. It’s a great fabric for breathable clothing for those warmer months.
