So 5oo4 is doing a few closet “basics” and I am here to share my first one of two this week. I can see this pattern being a closet staple for me this summer. This is Sara. Sara is a tank top with the option of knee length dress as well as a maxi dress. Tank tops come together so quickly. This was is no different. With only a front and back panel and 3 bands, it is so easy…basic. I sewed up the knee length dress length.
I ended up wearing it out immediately and taking photos at my mom’s. While there I also wore it to mow the grass. I guess that just proves it is pretty and pretty functionally. I love that about my clothing. I never really know what my day will entail, so I like that so many of my clothes can be wore for anything.
I sewed the 4x with a FBA graded to a 5x. The FBA is included with the pattern and it really does make a difference in the overall look and feel of patterns. If you need the FBA, you should use it. Since this is a basics pattern it doesn’t come with the typically options that 5 out of 4 is known for.
This fabric is from Stitchin’ Pretties and I love it. It is so pretty and soft and floral. This one is called Courtney and you can see it here. I love really do love the color purple and have added a fair amount of it to my wardrobe this summer. Remember my purple Easy Tee from 5oo4 back in June? I love it, I think I will wear it to work tomorrow.
