I am finally starting my summer wardrobe and knew I wanted to add a few new pieces to the line up. I sewed up the 5oo4 Taylor tank. The Taylor features a wide racer back and can be made with your choice of a flat or gathered back bodice. I choose to do the gathered option because why not? 🙂 It didn’t take much longer. It is only running a gathering stitch a few inches and it adds a cute little detail.
I sewed up a straight 5x since this pattern doesn’t include the usual FBA that 5oo4 has. I should have just done it myself as it is a little larger in the arms and back than I need. It is still a super cute tunic that I will wear all summer long. I appreciate that the racer back is wider than most, but still doesn’t cover my regular bra straps. Also worth noting, this pattern doesn’t have a back bodice seam, but due to using a fabric scrap I had to add one to make it work. 🙂
The Taylor Racerback pattern includes the following options:
- 4 bodice styles: Tank, Tunic, A-line Dress, and Swing Dress
- Maternity option with ruched sides
- Traditional Racerback
- Gathered Racerback
- Optional pockets for the swing dress bodice
This one will be easy to dress up or down depending on your accessories and fabric choices. Wear it to the park, pair it over a swim suit, or lounge around in the back yard. This is a super versatile top!
