I pieced together this tank from leftover fabric. I had one spot under the arm that I couldn't fill with fabric so I stitched a flap behind the hole. This isn't the best-made shirt I've ever sewn, but it gives me something to wear at home in the humid summer. The armholes are too tight to be comfortable for hiking, but that has something to do with how much difficulty I had finding an appropriate stitch for this fabric. Still, better a shirt to wear than fabric scraps taking up storage space.
Hi! I live in Virginia. My mom taught me to sew. I think I started at 4 or 5 by sewing buttons onto a handkerchief, but don't trust my memory. That was a long time ago. As a teenager, I was more interested in completing projects than learning good sewing techniques. Now, I am teaching myself some things I missed. My sewing interests are in learning to make alterations to and draft patterns to fit my petite 4'11" tall, 32" chest, 45" hip body.
