Pattern comparison, Lago Tank by Itch to Stitch(Hibiscus prints on black) and Staple Tank(Navy and White Stripe and floral) by Green Style Creations
My favorite tank I have been wearing is getting old so that I needed to make a new one.
I had the LagoTank pattern prepped sometime ago. I thought it was the perfect time to give this pattern a go!
This pattern is made for 5’ 6” and I am 5’1”. I shorten the pattern by 2.5”.
I took ½’ at the armscye, took 1” a few inches below underarm and another 1” at the line where the pattern says shorten or lengthen.
It was easy to sew, didn’t take long to make at all, but I didn’t like that how bra strap shows, (showing a lot) and also underarm was still too low.
I have to say I was disappointed. I checked on their website to see other people’s makes, but I didn’t see the issue that I was having.
I thought about fixing the pattern, but my bra straps were anywhere near from fabric that I know I have to do major design change of the pattern.
So I decided to try Staple Tank since I have become a big fan of their pattern instead.
I adjusted Staple Tank the same way I did with Lago Tank.
(See picture below)
I think it came out well. This pattern covers bra straps, so yay for me!
Underarm came out slightly lower than I wanted, but not a big deal, I can fix it easily with my next one.
I am very thankful that Itch to Stitch if offering free patterns and I could try it, but I had to say it was not for me.
Please share with me if you have sewn both patterns.
