Willow Tank in Chambray - Noodlehead

Willow Tank in Chambray - NoodleheadIt’s finally feeling like summer here the past few days, we may have even acquired our first sunburns to go along with it. I’m excited to see what unfolds for us this summer. It’s been such a privilege to be able to be at home with my kids and I really want to soak up every minute this summer. Time seems to be quadrupling in speed lately! So whenever I feel stressed out I usually go on a cleaning and clutter busting spree. My closest is where I usually go a little crazy. So this summer I definitely need some wardrobe staples including tanks like the Willow Tank and probably as many shorts as I can muster. I really don’t like wearing shorts, but sometimes you’ve gotta bite the bullet.Willow Tank in Chambray - Noodlehead

So this is my first Willow Tank (pattern by Grainline Studio) and it was a super satisfying sew. It maybe took 2-3 hours total from printing and taping together to cutting and sewing. I tried not to rush it too much. It’s easy for me to see the finish line after sewing just a couple of seams and then push through only to be disappointed that I didn’t slow down and take my time. So I was pretty successful on that front. Willow Tank in Chambray - Noodlehead

I picked this chambray that I’ve had for a bit, it was actually one of the only garment fabrics I had that had been washed and ready to go. It’s super soft and I’m glad it’s got some give because I’ve got some tweaking to do for the tank for the next time I make it. I have fairly broad shoulders so the upper arm area and back is pretty snug. If anyone can point me to some info on those kinds of adjustments I’d love to try it out. It’s one fit issue that I have with RTW clothing, too. I have a hard time finding woven shirts that are comfortable across the back and shoulder area.

Anyway, I’m excited that this is a tank I think will get worn quite a bit. I can see myself layering it under a cardigan for the fall and winter, too! Willow Tank in Chambray - Noodlehead
