KCW Day 7: Simple Feather Tank

Yay, we got to day 7 of Kids Clothes Week and I have to admit that I’m a bit exhausted! Hence this pretty simple project to finish things off.

I actually cut out this tank for a Kids Clothes Week a few seasons ago … (I think at the same time I cut out this one.) I used the The Blank Tank from Melly Sews/ Blank Slate Patterns, one I’ve used many times before. When I originally cut it out the intended recipient was Noah ( I cut a 4T out of a repurposed tee from the op shop), but I’ve made this for Isabelle.

I resisted the urge to add a floral pocket or something, because it is handy to have some simple/ plainer basics in her wardrobe to pair with the more ‘flamboyant’ items! Besides the hand stamped feather on the pocket kind of ties in with the ‘traveling’ theme in a way… feathers, birds, migrating, traveling, the feather in Forrest Gump maybe? … Perhaps it’s a stretch, but I like it anyway! (And can imagine that little pocket stuffed with feathers and other treasures, come Summer!)

So you may be wondering where is my little model? Yeah, I gave her the day off… after all she’d been busy being ‘Super Girl’ all day (more on that later) and it was cold by the time we got round to doing photos. However, Pipi was determined to be in the shoot. (You might not notice unless you look closely, but her hair and face are covered in orange pith as she was enjoying one of the oranges we picked yesterday a little too much … ah well, at least it creates a talking point, because there’s not much you can say about a simple little tank!)

Right enough already… it’s time to introduce ‘Super Girl’ (aka Isabelle at Kindy Superhero day!)


In case you wondered; the Superhero mask and cape (made from an old vintage pillowcase) was a DIY that I featured on here ages ago … oh how little Isabelle and Pipi look in that post!

Well that’s that… another Kids Clothes Week done and dusted… and I maybe might pop back in here with a wrap up post or something… but tomorrow… cleaning!

If you want to check out my previous days makes…here for my day 1 post, day 2, day 3, day 4, day 5 and day 6.

A feather is definitely for Forrest Gump ;) Every child needs a plain item in their wardrobe that goes with everything. Although the plainness of this top is somewhat questionable ;)

Lovely, I also need more basic items in my kids closet, all is colorfull and wild, doesn't combine at all!

Sometimes a little basic item isn't a bad thing. They need them just as much. Well done!
