I’ve been playing with the hemline and shape of my tank top pattern. By widening the bottom and changing the shape of the hem, I’ve come up with a new and really cute version!
I’m not exactly sure what this hemline is called, but I’ve been seeing it all over. It turned out so cute, I think I’m going to try one in my size.
I don’t have a tutorial for the t-shirt yet, I haven’t decided whether to edit the entire pattern (which is very time consuming) or just show you how to make the changes via photos. But I will show you how I made the reverse applique in this post. I have another version on some fabric I have been screen printing by hand, coming in a couple of days. I’ll have the pattern or tutorial ready in that post.
***Update*** Find the swing tank pattern here –>> Swing Tank Pattern.
To make the reverse applique, choose a simple shape and follow the directions below. (If you want to use the heart shape, download it here.)
That’s all there is too it. It’s actually a lot easier than a regular applique.
