Jocole Shoreline Tank review

Pattern Name: Shoreline Tank
Designer:  Jocole

Pattern Description:  A slim-fitting hip-length tank top with dainty straps and 2 delicate rows of ruffles along the neckline. This modern, classic and versatile tank is great for layering and easily goes with skirts, under jumpers or cardigans, or even paired with leggings or jeans. Comfortable enough for everyday play and yet sweet enough for any occasion. Easy tricks for sewing knit fabrics with a basic sewing machine for professional looking results – no serger required, and no amateur zigzags! Made with super comfy knit fabric or refashion some old shirts.

Purchased here:

Cost of pattern - $8.00 a little expensive but we will get a TON of use out of this one. 

Pattern Sizing: newborn through 5T

Size Made: 18 month

Model's Measurements: height-32", chest-18 1/2", waist-17 1/2", hips-20"

Did it look like the photo/drawing advertised once you were done sewing with it?  Yes, though I omitted the ruffles. 

Dealing with the pattern:  Pretty easy, not many pieces 

Level of difficulty:  Easy, though the binding took some extra time since this was my first time. 

Were the instructions easy to follow? yes. They are a little on the wordy side - there were far more pages of instructions than needed. 

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?  It's easy and looks store bought.  Not a huge fan of the way the binding is done in conjunction with the side seams.  

Fabric Used:  an old tshirt I had from high school. 

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:  Measurements suggest size 12 month, I went one size up so we could get more use out if it. I'm not sure I would like it any smaller than that. omitted the ruffles 

Would you sew it again?  Yes!  I have several other logo tees to upcycle. 

 Would you recommend it to others?  Yes and maybe suggest going to the next size larger. 

Conclusion:  Easy, cheap (fabric wise), awesome!!
