The Talor Tank

As I make progress sewing with knit fabrics, I often dreamed of finding a super quick, instant gratification kind of piece and I found it: The Talor Tank by Made for Mermaids!

Megan, the creative genius behind Made for Mermaids, called for testers and I was quick to volunteer. The time frame was very short and then I understood why: It REALLY is an easy sew! It took me about 1 hour - 1 hour and a half from cut to finish, is that quick or what?
This wonderful pattern comes in sizes 1/2 to 14 and has three different lengths: Tank, Tunic and Dress. The fit is perfect and it really makes for a comfortable piece to wear during the hot months of summer. I tested a tunic length for my 2 year old and loved how quickly it came together, definitely a beginner friendly pattern.
I made two tunics during nap time so it is really, really quick. The pattern offers recommendations on fabrics and notions to use and step by step instructions sure to please any skill level. There is also a mommy version created by Megan's sister Judy, from Patterns for Pirates, so if you are looking for a mommy and me quick sew, it is available. 
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do and make lots for summertime. The pattern can be found here:
