Hip Hop Tank Tour

Today I’m excited to be joining the Love Notions Hip Hop Tank Tour.  Love Notions has both a ladies’ version and girls’ version of the Hip Hop Tank Pattern.  I have previously made the Girls’ version, but this time I wanted to make one for myself.

I recently joined a gym and have been wanting some stylish workout clothes.  I used some active-wear type fabric I picked up at JoAnn’s to make a workout tank.  I was inspired by the back of this tank from Athleta

The pattern has tons of options, but I chose to make the color-blocked back and the sleeveless view (there is also a tank option which has thinner straps and an option to add sleeves)

I measured for the size medium on top, but between a medium and large for waist and hips.  I decided to just make the straight Large…mostly because I was lazy but also I wanted it to be a bit oversized.  In hindsight, I’m wishing I had made the medium top then blended out for waist and hips, as I think I would have liked this to be more fitted in the chest as intended.

The only modification I made was to the hemline.  The pattern has the option for a straight or high-low hem, but I wung my own shirt-tail hem.  I used the back of the high-low hem option and cut that for both the front and back then just curved up the sides a bit…so the length in back is the intended length of the top, which I think is perfect!!

I really love the back of this top!
