You know those old ratty layering tanks you have in your closet? The ones with the stitching coming apart on the left side, or holes in the front where you’ve pulled it over your belt countless times, or the worn out color that doesn’t resemble the one you bought? Or is it just me that has those in my closet? (Insert embarrassed smirk here). Either way, I am excited to tell you about the latest pattern from Greenstyle! It’s the perfect staple for your wardrobe- so the name “Staple Tank” is spot on!

The Staple Tank features a slimmer strap, but has enough of a strap to cover your bra straps. You can also choose to bind the neck and arms, or use bands. I made two with bands and two with binding. For this style of tank, I think the binding is my favorite. It takes a little longer to do binding, but it is so worth it and I find that I’m getting quicker each time I do it.

I lengthened mine by 1.5″ at the lengthen/shorten line on the front and back bodice pieces, because I like to have my bottom layer a little longer so as not to show my mom tummy. I also graded from a size SM bust to a MD waist, since these love handles just keep holding on. It fits so well! The four I made in testing have already been in heavy rotation.

I used a couple different types of fabrics for these. The pink is a cotton blend that feels like a rayon spandex. I’ve had it in my stash for quite a while, so I don’t remember where it’s from or the exact fiber content. It is lighter weight and curled a lot when I sewed it, so I had to go a little slower on the bands and hem. The black with white Deathly Hallow symbols is from Joann’s. They have some awesome Harry Potter knits! The fiber content is a cotton jersey, and it was great to see with. The gray is an athletic brushed polyester from Amelia Lane Designs Fabric. ABP is a moisture wicking fabric, so it’s great for a workout tank, as well as for layering in the summer time! My solid black is a cotton jersey that was in my stash.

I typically always have a tank on underneath my shirt- I guess I’m just from the layering generation (think stretch lace hemmed tanks that peeked out from under your shirt!) . So you can bet that I’ll have a closet full of these tanks!

Purchase your pattern here and get to sewing the perfect staple for your wardrobe!

Happy sewing!
