As promised, I am back with item number two from 5oo4 this week. The entire point of the Basics line is to give people who are either new to sewing or like really fast sewing projects something new to make. Even though I am an experienced sewist, I enjoy quick, instant gratification projects. Did you pick up Sara when I shared it on Tuesday? Here is the link to that post!
Mandy is like the slim fitting little sister to Sara. Mandy is fitted through the bust, waist and hip. Because of this, it is the perfect tank for wearing to the gym, layering under your Eleanor cardigan, or wearing to bed. You could even use a rib knit fabric to make your own comfy muscle shirt. I used a pretty floral print I picked up from Sew Blessed Fabrics a while ago. It is most likely an ITY, but sometimes I am unsure what a fabric really is. It sewed up nicely even though it was a little silky.
I sewed up the 4x bodice with the full bust adjustment which I graded to a 5x waist and hip. This is the same size I always sew for 5oo4. I love that their size chart remains consistent so I know how garments will fit before I even sew them. I choose the tunic length with the scoop neck as my options. Since this is a pattern in the basic line these are the included options.
The Mandy Fitted Tank includes:
- Regular front bodice OR FBA (Full Bust Adjustment) front bodice
- Two front necklines: high scoop or low scoop
- Two hem lengths: top or tunic
- Sizes XXS – 5X
It is currently only priced at $6.36. Don’t forget to stop back on Thursday for my tank on the new Many Tank!
Here I paired my new tank with a Circle Cardigan hack I blogged about.
