Black and white bias summery top - the Hunter Tank pattern

I am just so impressed by people who make and publish their own patterns! Like this one by Jennifer Lauren Vintage. She's a reader and asked me if I'd like to try out her new top pattern!

This is the first completely bias-cut garment I've made in a long, long time, and it reminded me how fun it is to sew on bias! Especially with a stripe, if you're up for the challenge. ;) I liked using a fabric like this shirting stripe that shows off the angles.

Jennifer's pattern was beautiful and easy to use! I really appreciated some of the quality details like the center front seam finish.

 It would be PERFECT with a high-waisted full skirt in a bright color! But I don't have any of those somehow, and I wanted to go all neutral with this outfit and paired it with more white. And tan. My faves right now. White is the summer version of grey, right??


I also just got these new wedges and they're the first pair of espadrilles I've owned in years!! I had a pair of light tan strappy ones from Old Navy in high school that I wore with everything, several summers till they wore out. These are a much more stylish version of those!

Summer is my absolute favorite season for getting dressed!!

Pattern: The Hunter Tank by Jennifer Lauren Vintage
Modifications: None, but I left off the optional pocket
