I can’t believe we are almost done with the first week of August. I’ve joined Ti from Sewing by Ti for another tour, and I love this month’s theme: My Favorite (Sewing) Things. It reminds me of my favorite movie, the Sound of Music! I can hear Maria singing about raindrops on roses as I type. 😉

I have a lot of favorites at the moment, and it’s hard to choose just one thing. I did narrow it down and decided to share my current favorite summer tank, the Pony Tank Pattern by Chalk and Notch!

This pattern is a quick sew–I was able to get it printed, taped, cut and sewn in just over an hour. I left the bottom unhemmed for two reasons. One, I can be a little lazy, and knits are great for lazy people like me. And two, I ran out of wooly nylon for my cover stitch looper, so I opted to just leave it. I might hem it in the future, but it looks fine as is. I wear it casually on the weekend with jeans (seen here) and tucked into my favorite pencil skirt for work. Versatile is the name of my game!

The Pony Tank has a soft v-neckline that looks great with a fun statement necklace. I was so excited to knock inserting the neckband out of the park on the first try. Gabriela, the designer, did a killer job at drafting this pattern. Everything went together perfectly and the fit is on point. It’s fitted at the top of the tank and then flows out–but not too much. It’s already been a summer staple for me, and it will be the perfect transition into Fall. Did I mention that it comes with a dress option? I can’t wait to try it!

ponytank-4I have a ton of other sewing favorites, but I’ll save them for another day (or two).
