Homegrown Tank

Last week I had the chance to test Little Lizard King's newest pattern The Homegrown Tank.

The dress is made with a knit bodice and woven sash and skirt.  There are instructions for upcycling a tank top for the bodice too.


I have been trying to use more of the fabric I already have in my stash instead of buying new stuff.  This skirt fabric came from Joann's over a year ago (but I have seen it there recently too)  and the sash is Amy Butler's Lotus Full Moon Polka Dot in Lime.  The bodice is made from some Ponte De Roma knit I had leftover from another project.

I really love the knit bodice for Em, it is comfy and she can move and play in it.  

I think I will be making more of these for summer this year!


  1. Awww she is soooo cute! Love her outfit and shoes!

    1. Thanks Eila! She picked those shoes herself, they are her favorites :)

  2. The dress is cute but your model takes the cake!

  3. What about your favorite sport? now such a question is asked by every student who enrolled in a higher university and it is very difficult to have extra time, therefore other students have assistants in their studies, for example, this site https://grademiners.com/ on which they do any types of written work

  4. When counting the number of pages for your order, don’t forget to exclude the title and bibliography! They are free, as well as formatting (e.g., MLA, APA, Chicago/Turabian, Harvard). https://domyhomeworkfor.me/economics-homework-help

  5. I wanna say thanks for this forum. I didn't even think that something like that existed. So once again thank you! I will be glad if I help someone too. If you have problems writing all sorts of articles but you need it in your studies, I can suggest you contact them here. Hiring professional writers to complete your essay and other writing assignments could be the finest way.

  6. When I write an article for myself, one of the most difficult tasks is to arrange the paragraphs in a logical sequence. Fortunately, a sketch helps a lot in this regard. With an outline, you can arrange the sequence of paragraphs in a shape that suits your topic. For example, if you're writing a personal essay essaytigersreview.com, you might outline it so that each paragraph builds on the tension of the previous one. With the help of sketches, you can better understand what your essay will ultimately look like.

  7. Nowadays, almost every student is using the services of custom essay writing service. This is because of too many demands piling on the shoulder of the student and the strain of paying for their education. As such, custom writing services become an easy way out of the situation.
    I cam recommend you the professional one, where I always order my home assignments and my teacher always says that my papers are the best among my classmates, so you can use papers-land which received the award of the best essay writing service 2021

  8. That is how immigration works, people always move to a place that they consider better for them – there is always a reason, even if the reasons can be very different and sometimes quite ambiguous. Immigration is not a simple matter, and in the modern world there is often much in the way of legislation which must be adhered to, in order that immigration will not be considered illegal. http://www.immigration-residency.eu/immigration-to/
