McCalls 7155: Charmeuse and Chains Layered Tank!

At first glance of this pattern, I saw not a one possibility.  Having a large bust steers me away from tank tops.  Its really hard to find one that fit me well and gives me the coverage that I need.  McCalls patterns were on sale at Joanns and I needed one more to complete my sale number, and just grabbed McCalls 7155 and ran to the register.  I didn't feel much like sewing this weekend, and I had client orders to fill, so I decided to make me something quick to get my mojo back.  The first pattern I saw staring up at me on my sewing table was this one.  So I looked at the line drawings and walla, View "F", just spoke to me. 

The fabric I used is a stretch Charmeuse from Fabricmart.  It has chains covering the entire fabric.  I only had 2 1/2 yards, and when I purchased it, I intended to use it to make a cowl neck shell to go under a blazer, but I never got around to making the blazer.  I was very please at the tank came out and even more pleased that it gave me the coverage I was looking for.  I can see a couple more in my future as well.  I have a very lover silky yellow fabric that I think would be gorgeous.

The picture on front of the pattern, left nothing for the imagination, but the line art in my opinion is what will sell you on the pattern itself.  There are so many possibilities for this particular pattern. 



Happy Sewing!
