Girls Handkerchief Hem Tank With Lace Back

Cute sewing project idea for girls: a knit Handkercheif hem tank with a lace back.

This handkerchief hem tank is a result of improvisational sewing. I read Angela’s post last week and my take away was to “let it flow”. So I made this project without much of a plan, and it was a nice break.

I used this stripey knit from Hancock’s (again.) You may recognize the print from a recent tank I made for myself, or maybe these undies. I had a couple odd shaped pieces left, and I really wanted to clean up the scrap bin a little.

That’s why the front is cut on fold…because get rid of all the fabric. The neckline and armcyes are trimmed with elastic lace again. I really like this quick, easy finish.

The back is elastic lace. It was a little tricky to hem.

In my mind, I pictured my niece wearing her handkerchief hem tank with leggings. When she paired it with shorts, I really wished I had made it a bit shorter or longer. But in the spirit of letting it flow: whatever. She’s cool and comfortable. This fabric has had the tendency to shrink up a bit despite pre-washing, so I may end up with more of a t-shirt length anyway. No worries:)

We took these photos for her moms birthday. I got some really pretty headshots and we had fun. Her brothers didn’t want photos taken, but you can see my nephew hiding in one of the pictures.

    How did I miss this? I’m on vacation so trying to catch up on my reading tonight. LOVE this top. Why have I STILL not ordered that elastic trim?! I really must do that.
