Yes, I’m still alive.

And, yes I’m still talking about the Tiny Pocket Tank.

I’m sorry.

At least I’m not showing you another before and after picture of a men’s button up shirt. Not today.

At Sew Weekend, the Tiny Pocket Tank pattern experienced a remix it didn’t see coming. No, this is not your typical slow-love-song-turned-hip-hop remix. R. Kelly came nowhere near the Tiny Pocket Tank pattern. Let’s all whisper a tiny hallelujah for that.

Instead, just a few subtle changes were incorporated. Things like reversing the bias tape, so that a perfect fabric contrast is clearly visible.

Aren’t a polka dot and seersucker great together? Me thinks so. My friend Naomi whipped this beauty up in no time flat.

My sister bought some great gingham fabric on super sale at Walmart. I believe it was $1.50 per yard. So this shirt basically cost her nothing.

And she can sew a camouflage pocket. That is talent.

I dare you to find that thing. Oooh, she’s good.

A final, unfinished Tiny Pocket Tank in another insanely cheap Walmart fabric. This time with no pocket and reverse bias tape as well.

Last week my mother gifted me a great black and white plaid to make another Tiny Pocket Tank when I return to Colorado. I absolutely cannot wait. Summer is officially not allowed to end until I get my fill of Tiny Pocket Tanks.
