There are a few designers that I look forward to seeing what they have on air. H by Halston is my favorite for tops & simple dresses, Issac Mizarahari has the best cardigans & dresses. Liz Claiborne has great tops.
I saw this sleeveless knit top with sheer overlay aired last week and knew I could copy this. There is a knit tank underneath and a chiffon type overlay that crosses in the front. The hem is high-low.

I couldn't justify $40 for a tank top so off to the sewing room I went. I used my TNT tank pattern and made a second copy, making the front full (not on the fold). I used my french curve to curve the hem.
You can see the full specs here.
I used a yard of white knit I had in stock for who knows what reason. It was too thin to use for a dress or skirt so I think it's perfect for the under tank. I also had some mesh knit fabric that I bought a few months ago from Fabric Mart. I think I only paid $1.99 or less per yard.

I am happy with the outcome of this top. I'm more happy that I used up a fabric that I don't usually sew with.
Until next time..................
