Tank Week: Ella Top by Liola Patterns

My love for the Ella Top by Liola Patterns is, at this point, well documented. That’s what happens when you make a pattern 5 times.

Tank Week with pink 12 Tank Week: Ella Top by Liola PatternsThis tank pattern was probably my first tried-and-true basics pattern. It’s perfect in so many ways, starting with the fact that you can make it with 1 1/3 yards of fabric. The back yoke is faced – perfect for scrap busting and using directional prints in unique ways. The tank sews up nicely in a variety of fabrics, and the french seams keep the insides nice and fresh. The fit is generous and easy – the pleat at the center back offers lots of breathing room. I made several of these while pregnant last summer. My plan was to come in on the side seams but I like the swingy, loose fit. I could literally go on and on and on…but instead, here are my makes!
