New Pattern Release: The Ascend Tank

Posted by Melanie Burns on

Hey y'all Greenstylers, its Melanie here and I am so excited to introduce you to my very first pattern, the Ascend Tank! 

 The Ascend Tank is a super comfortable curved split hem tank that has two lengths: cropped or full, two neck and armscye finishing techniques: bands or binding, and two back options: racerback or U back. This tank is a super quick, straightforward sew and is perfect for a confident beginner. The most difficult part of this pattern is probably hemming the curve on the front and back pieces, but once you get the hang of that, its such a quick and satisfying sew! The asymmetric hem is longer in the back and shorter in the front to offer some booty coverage, and the longer length offers great coverage in both the front and back for those who want to wear leggings but don't necessarily want to show off all the goods in them. It also features a low armscye to show off your favorite sports bra! My favorite feature of this pattern is the split side hem. You can choose how open you want it to be by how far down you topstitch. The pattern instructions recommend topstitching down 4", however if you want it to be a little more closed you can stitch farther down, or if you want it more open only stitch it down a little, the choice is yours! 

 

This pattern follows our current curvy size chart and covers size B-M.  We recommend using light weight, flowy fabrics with at least 50% stretch like Bamboo Spandex, Rayon Spandex, Nylon Spandex, Tricot, etc. All sizes only take one yard of fabric, so this is a great "one yard wonder" sew! 

 

Grab the Ascend Tank here, on sale for $8.50 until Monday April 4, after which it will return to its full price of $12.00.
