I love colour blocking and the Stonecrop tank top kids by MW Patterns* is just perfect for that. The tank top has three different options. I sewed the two options with colour blocking, there is also the option of a plain tank top in just one fabric.
Now that summer is almost here it is a great time to sew tank tops. I love patterns that include colour block options because your can use smaller scraps for those and you can combine different fabrics. I sewed this skirt for our eldest a couple of weeks ago. It is blue with silver (glitter) lines on it and I had some fabric left. Perfect to match the tank top with the skirt.
For our middle daughter I chose some leftover fabric from this peplum top. I find this fabric difficult to combine with other fabric because it is already a busy print. I do love the match with a leftover from this dress.
The neck and arms are done with binding. Usually I prefer to sew the bands with my serger, which is much quicker than binding, however now with my coverlock I like the professional finishing with binding. Binding just takes a bit more time.
I love the round hem at the front and back of this tank top!
This pattern both has the option to print without seam allowance or with seam allowance. So before you start printing think about what you prefer and select the sizes you need with or without seam allowance. When you open the file all sizes both with and without seam allowance are selected.
Fabric: The fabric from the yellow top all come from de Stoffenstraat. The purple horses are the Dala Horse Lila in combination with fabric from Caresstoffen.
