Love Notions Hip Hop Tank Blog Tour - another old favorite revisited!

The Hip Hop tank was another early pattern that Miss P and I tested for Tami, and it was high time to revisit it! A friend of Miss P has a shirt that had a contrast triangle sewn into the back, and I've been wanting to recreate it for awhile now. The basic view A was the perfect base for that - I simply cut the back pattern into pieces (cutting the center triangle on the fold and mirrored pieces for the back sides) and added seam allowance before sewing the pieces back together and assembling per pattern instructions.

I love the fit of this tank on Miss P - the chest is a fairly slim fit, and it flares ever so slightly toward the hem. It's not too flowy and not too tight; this pattern really is a great staple to have in my kiddo's (and my) wardrobe. I love the slight racerback, too! I added the little pocket to the front to balance the back with a little visual interest, and it was a great way to share my hoarded plaid from Raspberry Creek Fabrics without giving the whole yard away to her. ;) 

Oy, this girl. She is looking much too grown up lately, but is still happy to pretend-text her buddies on an old battery-less Blackberry.  😂

Make sure to enter our giveaway for LN credit, and check out the other blogs on the tour this week!
