Who said that sewing with knits is scary? This basic tank top can be your perfect introduction. Made in a flash using an overlocker/serger, it’s so easy you’ll want to make several! Useful for layering or as a stand-alone basic, this tank top will be your go-to garment come the dog days of summer.
To make a fashion classic for the next generation: Start with a simple, classic shape: The Circle. Add a touch of floral embroidery. Put a fun new spin on a junior fashion. …and your little one is ready for the runway.
Here in Chicago we’re starting to pull things together for the much anticipated gardening seaseon (is it spring yet?), including taking stock of our gardening “stuff”.
