Itch to Stitch Lago Tank

Happy Mother's day!! I am gearing up for the hot weather that we get in Texas every summer by sewing up some easy, breezy tank tops. When I feel sweaty and hot, I enjoy wearing tops that are not clingy, and the Itch to Stitch Lago Tank pattern fits this need perfect. It is fitted through the bust but has the perfect amount of ease around the waist and hips.

I was excited to have the opportunity to test the Lago Tank pattern for Kennis Wong last week but am even more excited to tell you that the pattern is FREE. So, you can make yourself a stack of these for this hot summer we have ahead. I was able to make four tops during testing. These really come out quick! My first two tanks are in a rayon spandex. Rayon spandex has great drape and works well for this pattern.

I got to take some photos with my lovely friend Aimee for this test as well. I always love getting together with her, and I think we are finally getting together to sew or take photos more than just shop! My top here is made in a rayon spandex from Simply by Ti.

I also made an athletic tank out of athletic brushed poly from Zenith and Quasar. It is super soft and has moisture wicking so will be perfect for working out in the heat.

  This photo was an outtake but is my favorite due to my sweet little photo bombers with us that day.

Lastly, here is a Lago tank that I made in a jersey blend I got from Wherehouse Fabrics in Dallas. I love these colors and was so excited to find it on the remnant table for a great deal. Sometimes what they label as remnants can be upwards of 4 yards (or more!) so I may have several tops for the girls and I out of this fabric.  

In honor of Mother's Day, tell your mom you love her. If you are a mother, keep on paying attention to those little things you do for your kids that you aren't sure they even notice. I had to call my mom this past week just to tell her thank you for singing to me all the time growing up. So many of her songs of worship are etched in my heart and come out just when I need them. I still call her sometimes to sing a song to me when I can't quite find her version on YouTube. :)

Thanks for reading my blog! You can grab your free tank pattern here.
