Garments are one of my favorite things to design! I love when people comment on my designs, but it’s even better when someone comments on a something I’m wearing! So I decided to design a tank top. This design was originally started for my last Design Wars Creme de la Creme Challenge. With it starting out to be a standard tank, I put it aside and tried for something a little more unique for the challenge. The Midsummer Pullover ended up being my project for the challenge, with a tee version for those who preferred a more standard top released shortly after. With the weather increasingly getting warmer, I picked the tank back up. I wanted something sleeveless, lacy but yet not completely revealing the layer under, and fashionable with a cowl neck option. I love the cowl neck tops but this design seemed to work better with the cowl neckline folded around the shoulders, giving the garment a completely different style!
Coming in fall, you’ll see a garment with a real cowl neckline that I’m very excited about! Though it’s started, I’ll be putting it aside to work on finishing the 2 summery garments that I started last year, plus the 3 that I just started this year! Whew, that’s a lot of hookin’…. but I’m loving it!
For those of you that don’t know, I work at a school. I love spending the summer months at home with my children! This also allows me extra time for designing!
Back to the Summer Dreams Tank! I love this design! Though I love the plain tank better than with the cowl neckline, adding the neckline is perfect for office settings where sleeveless may not be permitted.
