here is a new tank I made using some remnants fabric. I am still getting used to construction so I miss a few details like doing a better hem and such but in time.

I just noticed the straps are uneven in the back. They were causing me the most problems. I will have to redo them again

That's beautiful fabric!  And I love the pattern you used.  Did you go by a premade pattern or did you improvise it?  And thank you for using wide straps on your tank top.  Not all of us can get away without wearing a bra.   Undecided

Great job!  I'm not exactly one to talk, as I am not a very good clothes-maker, but being patient and correcting your mistakes is a really great way to get some good practice and to get a great finished object.  It looks beautiful on you!

Thanks!! I just traced loosely an other top and went from there. I am surprised it fits so well since I usually mess up a lot when sewing (I am still learning).  Grin

Nice work for not being a really experienced sewer.  Most people won't even attempt zippers, even those who have lots of experience!  That's the best way to learn in my book, just try it out and learn from you're mistakes.  I taught myself to sew like 12 years ago, and trust me, you'll make TONS of stuff that is "off".  You'll get the hang of it with some practice and LOTS of patience.  Keep at it, you are definately headed in the right direction!  Good Job!
