Do you know what happens when you go out of town three times over the course of about one month? Well, a couple of things-one, you have a great time! I’ve been to the beach, I’ve been camping and I’ve been to a family reunion in the Rockies. BUT, it also means that I am scrambling to keep up on real life, like for example…blogging. But never you fear, because today we’ve got Karly from Paisley Roots here to share a tank top pattern and free cut file so that you can customize your own shirt!

Instructions for Tank Top:
IMPORTANT: Make sure you check out the size chart! If your child is between two sizes, size up!
Mark the neck, armholes, Neckbands, and Armbands in quarters.
Pin your Neckbands and Armbands right sides together at those markings.
Make sure the Neckband seam is in the center of the back and that the Armband seams are at the bottom or the armscyes.
Press seam up towards the Neck/Arm band.
Fold Neckband/Armband over, encasing your seam, and pin in place.
Switch to the double needle.
*If you do not have a double needle you can use your machines zig-zag stitch to sew the seam.
Make sure the band is facing right side up.
Sew along your Neckband/Armbands slowly, pulling pins out as you go.
Sew hem in place using the double needle and 1/2″(1.5cm) seam allowance.
*If you don’t have a double needle, you can use a zig-zag stitch to sew the hem.
(I used a coverstitch for the hem, but you do not need a coverstitch to finish the hem.
Add your Iron-on Vinyl and you have a One-of-a-kind Tank top!
