Everyday Tank Top ~ Blog Tour and Giveaway...

Everyday Tank Top... easy to sew. Great pattern by Serger Pepper ~ sewn by Threading My Way

Today is Day One on the Everyday Tank Top Blog Tour and I'm pleased to be showing you the tank top I sewed using the Everyday Tank: Top and Dresses pattern, by Serger PepperI was given a copy of the pattern to participate in the blog tour. Summer is fast approaching here in Australia, so no pattern hacks for me. The pattern is perfect without any alterations.

Little Miss wholeheartedly approves of her new top. If she's not keen on a new garment, it's always taken off as soon as the photo shoot is over. Not so this top. We had a family do that day and she left the top on for a few hours. 

The Everyday Tank Top has met the clothing requirements for Little Miss...
  • it's comfortable
  • the fabric choice is spot on
  • the design is to her liking

Her Mum and I both love the top too...
  • it fits well
  • it's easy to put on and take off
  • it looks so, very cute

The side panels not only look good and add interest, but their addition means that small pieces of fabric can be used. I was lucky enough to have this fabric in my stash. 

As well as a tank top, the pattern can also be used to make either a midi or a maxi dress. The Everyday Tank is super quick and easy to sew. It's a great pattern and one I can see me using over and over, especially given that the size range is from 3 years to 14 years.

When I make the next Everyday Tank, I'll write up a complete pattern review. 

Two lucky people will win a copy of the Everyday Tank: Top and Dresses pattern. You can enter the giveaway via the Rafflecopter widget below.

a Rafflecopter giveaway ... Pam


  1. Thanks Pam for the great review, can't wait to read the complete one you're going to write <3
    Hugs from Italy (Sunday, 9pm right now here... we're way behind you LOL)

  2. Love this tank. The length is great, the neckline is modest and the armholes are high. All in all everything to look for in a little girls tank top. Great review. Congrats to Irene! Looks like a good staple.

  3. This is so pretty!!!! You picked lovely fabrics - love how it turned out!

    1. Thanks so much, Bethany. I was lucky these fabrics were in my stash. The floral I picked up super cheaply somewhere.

  4. Love the pop of yellow to match the flower print!

  5. Oh Pam, this is such a cute top! I love the photo of Grandma kissing Little Miss. The fabrics make this so sweet.

  6. This is a really great looking pattern!

  7. Love the fabrics combo Pam :) Perfect for summer. I too take it as a huge compliment when LM refuses to take a new outfit of after a photo-shoot :)

  8. Very pretty. Love the daisy print!

  9. Love your fabrics, too. Now if I could figure out how to make my serger stop lettucing the knits, I'd love to try this one.

  10. Your top is making me miss warmer weather even more! Just a few days ago, it turned really cold here (hence the reason my daughter is wearing a long-sleeve shirt under her tank)! I love the fact that this tank uses scrap knits, too. Beautiful job as usual, Pam!

  11. That's a really cute top - I love the combination of the 3 fabrics, but the daisy fabric is a slam dunk!

  12. Very cute fabric combo, Pam! The fit seems perfect and I do love the modest coverage too.

  13. The top is very cute! I like how the pattern has side panels. It's a great way to use up leftover yardage.

  14. Lovely top, you did a great job Pam :)
