How to add bra coverage to a tank top12:03 PM
Did you see my bra straps on yesterday's blog post about the Halla Stardust Tank ? Today we're going to remedy that. BUT, before ...
BUT, before we do, here's a little disclaimer. I have seen MANY people in the Halla Stardust Tank. I would say the majority of them had plenty of coverage for their bra straps. So, you may not need this adjustment, at all. I have wide shoulders and my bra straps tend to sit towards the end of those shoulders. That is unique to MY body. So, you may want to try the pattern, AS IS, before you bother making this adjustment. Further, you can use this same adjustment on a pattern that has a too wide neckline to bring the neckline IN.
While I am using the Halla Stardust Tank for today's post, this method will work on ANY tank pattern (knit or woven) to extend out the shoulder seams.
You will need:
-Tank pattern of your choice
First, trace out a copy of your tank pattern, including at least the armscye, neckline and shoulder.
Fifth, make the same adjustments to the back pattern piece. (not shown, but the same method as above.
Sixth, chances are, your adjustments shouldn't make too much difference for the truing of this pattern, but, if you're obsessed with having a trued seam, now is the time to check your pattern pieces. I skipped this step (out of laziness).
