Made some tops awhile back-they're all some of my favorites. I wear the tanks all the time in the summer; they're super comfy & cool & cute (says I).
The pattern is Simplicity Built by Wendy (<3 those patterns) 3692.

The first is a stretchy poleyester deal. Sounds gross, I know, but it's super soft.

The green is just knit.

The giraffe one is a cotton (even tho the pattern calls for just knits...) and then a black knit yoke.

thanks for checkin' it!

Wow, you did a great job with all of the finish work-- hems, topstitching, etc!!  Good stuff!  I've allowed knits to intimidate me, so I think it's time I start to give them a shot.  Thanks for the inspiration.   Smiley

Thanks very much! glad you liked 'em! Knits aren't nearly as scary as they seem...just don't stretch 'em while sewing 'em;)
