Greenstyle Xpress Tank
This week has been a busy one. Elizabeth and I were both chosen to be part of the testing process for Greenstyle Creations new Xpress Tank. If you have ever tested a pattern you know it can mean lots of sewing, trying different modifications, taking notes and sewing again. Testing can be so much fun and sew ;) rewarding.
Luckily for us the Xpress tank is a simple sew and used less than a yard of fabric!
I know that's crazy for an adult top but its true.
Greenstyle's new tank is a one piece pattern with only two shoulder seams. Just keeps getting better right?
Designed to be a perfect option for your favorite work out top, but we quickly discovered it is also a perfect for a nice flirty everyday top.
I really like this pattern, except for one thing... I am heavy chested on a smallish frame and found I had some small issues with gaping. If you are blessed (or cursed) with the same issue  you are familiar with this issue on most tops. However since this is meant to be a work-out top I tried it with a good compression type sports-bra and it was perfect.  Even with that I still like this top pattern and all of its options.
The front is simple with two neckline options. The back (oh that gorgeous back!) is fun, breezy and complimenting with three options including rounded, pointed and tied back.
I love the versatility of this tank as well as the fact that it is so easy to make.
As always Greenstyle patterns are well drafted, clear and easy to read, easy to put together and follow, and have layers.
Elizabeth made a pointed version in our custom oversized Lydia stripe on Double brushed poly. It came out soooo Amazing!
  
 I made one in our solid double brushed poly,
And another in our custom boho frames that will be coming back to the shop for on demand printing soon!  I was lucky enough to not only get some of this print but Brandi also dyed it!
