To celebrate mother’s day, EYMM is having a mommy and me tour. I decided to make the California top for my middle girl and I. When I started looking at the pattern pieces, I saw an opportunity to work with woven fabric. So I used a georgette to make a swingy tank for my little one by sizing up 1 size and leaving off the waist elastic. I used the scoop neck for the front and the back. It turned out to be a perfect summery tank. You can accomplish this by sizing up, then creating a lining cut where you want it to stop (mine was a crop length) and using the burrito method to have a fully lined woven tank.
I used georgette for myself also. I sized up once again. Then I left mine to be sheer, and used bias tape for my neck and arms. I also created bust darts. Then I added the elastic since swingy is not my jam. I love how it turned out and my mini was so excited to share a top and blog post with me.
