Walk in the Woods Swing Tank

Have you been sewing along with the Kids Clothing Week Challenge over at Elsie Marley?  Last night I sewed a Toddler Swing Tank for Ruby.  It is a free pattern posted just yesterday on the relatively new blog, True Bias (which is fabulous, btw).


This is a great little pattern - I liked the bias tape facings in the arm and neck holes and the back button closure.  Every time I use a pattern I learn a little more about how to properly sew clothes.

This is my second day's offering for kcwc.  I actually sewed two shirts the first day, but one is already in the laundry and the other is awaiting some freezer paper stenciling.  This top was just so cute I couldn't resist taking pictures right away.


The fabric is Aneela Hoey Walk in the Woods, in cloud.  Isn't it pretty?


Ruby likes it, too!  All in all, a very successful top.


Speaking of successful tops, my Blue-Eyed Girl top made it into the Top of Tops for week 4 of Rae's Spring Top Sewalong.   There are a lot of really pretty tops this round, but if you like mine best (I'm letter L), vote for me, will you?  Thanks!

Too cute! I'm sort of sewing along. I did great on Monday and Tuesday, but today my schedule was jam-packed, and I'm exhausted tonight, so I'm being easy on myself and telling myself that it's okay to stretch KCWC out over two weeks. : )

Also, congratulations on the blue-eyed-girl top's success!

It looks SO good. Please let me know if you found any problems with the pattern. As far as I know you are the first one to sew it up besides me.
And thanks for the shout out!

ps Ruby is absolutely adorable.

I have failed miserably with kcwc. I love your top. It seems like it would be easy to lengthen into a sweet dress, too. I just subscribed to True Bias - thanks for the link.
