Madagascar Tank

Last week I made Loes Hinse's Madagascar Tank.  I was hesitant to spend $20 on this simple pattern, but I'm glad I did.

Her patterns are just GOOD.  This one fit me straight out of the envelope with NO alterations!  of course, the drapey fabrics recommended allow for a good fit as well.  I have had a few yards of this rayon crepe in my stash for years, so decided to use it.  It was perfect.  I can see myself making many of these.  In fact, I have another cut out already.

This pattern has a CF & CB seamline.  neither are straight.  This is what adds some of the bust and waist shaping.  All seams are serged and the neckline and armholes are just serged, turned under and stitched.  Super simple and fast.

Definitely see more of these in my future.

Very nice top, pretty fabric! It's nice when no alterations are needed.
