Ginger Made: Tiny Pocket Tank v3

GUYS. I love this pattern. Have we discussed this?  OK, we have, like, maybe 100 times, but I’m sayin’… dudes, you gotta make this thing!  It’s basically my favorite ever.

This is a cotton lawn from Lisette’s collection for Jo-Ann Fabrics.  I bought it a little over a year ago with a dress in mind, but I’m glad that I used it as a top.  Next time I make one of these, I’m going to skip the binding piece included with the pattern and just make my own double-fold bias tape.  I’m too clumsy to cleanly attach the binding following Jen’s directions (not that I’m very good at attaching regular bias tape, either…).

If it looks like my Tiny Pocket Tank is missing a tiny pocket this time, it isn’t!  I just matched the pattern very, verrrrrrrry carefully!  Yay!

What are you guys up to these days?  Working on anything fun?  I’m just about done with the muslin for my Hazel dress, and hopefully will get one more project finished before the end of the month.  We decided on a whim to move, so it’s been super hectic around here lately with packing and all that stuff.  Hopefully that will go quickly and smoothly so I can get back to sewing!

    • Thanks, lady! I think it will go well… we’ve just been in our current place for so long that we’ve accumulated TONS of junk! It will be nice to throw stuff away and streamline things a bit!


  1. It’s so cute, and so are you!!! I think you’ve put the fabric to great use….wonderful colour…..good luck with the move.
    On my sewing table….a pig costume ( in a tutu)! But sewing time has been scarce…


  2. I love it, and your photos! You look like you’re having a blast 🙂 good luck with the move, I have a love/hate thing with moving, love the sorting, purging and going somewhere new, hate the length of time the process can take here in the UK (think 3 months-ish!)…
    I’m choosing what to do next having just finished several items which I most photograph and blog about!


  3. Wow, amazing job on the pattern matching! I totally thought you’d left off the pocket. That is definitely a cute pattern; I love it w/ your cut-offs. 🙂


  4. So glad to see another Tiny Pocket Tank addict! I love this version of yours and you matched the pocket up perfectly! Wow! I’ve made two in jersey, but I’m dying to make some in a nice cotton lawn or voile, I think then I will add the pocket too as it won’t be too bulky for my frame. Good lukc with the spontaneous move too ;o)


  5. Such a sweet tiny pocket tank – you are tempting me to try it but first I need to get my traveller dress done AND I succumbed and got the renfrew pattern too, so no more new patterns till those are done. Good luck with the move.


    • Ugh, so many patterns, so little time! I always have way more that I’d like to do than I have time. But I can’t wait to see your traveler dress! It’s going to be so sweet!


  6. so cute! and it’s great colour on you. The pattern looks v similar to the Wiksten tank (which I was totally addicted to making a while ago) – but I’m going to try this one too. I also have the scout tee cut out and ready to sew… too much to sew, too little time! 🙂


  7. I love this top on you !! Such pretty fabric too. I cant wait to see your hazel made up and good luck with the move ! Is man friend going to be bringing his washing basket ??! xxx

  9. I don’t see no tiny pocket! Skills, girls. Mad. I need to get a pattern or two from Jen already. Her strapless dress has been on my to-buy/sew list for ages. You’re probably all moved in by now, so good luck with unpacking & setting up house 🙂
