Pindar Paisley Retro Tank

I first found this adorable Retro Tank Pattern from Amelie Clothing when I was writing my Kids Clothes Week plans post.  I fell in love with this Netherlands-based shop and the whimsical style of their children’s clothing designs.

The thing I loved the most about this pattern was the ADORABLE side tail detail.  As I’ve said a million times before, I am a sucker for a swingy shape on a girl’s shirt or dress.  I cannot resist patterns with this element.  But this one has the swing shape plus that side tail, and a button and loop back closure, and that sealed the deal for me.  Absolutely adorable.

I think Hannah likes it too,  because she kept reaching down to grab the edge of the shirt and then spinning around.  What little girl doesn’t like a nice “spinny” shirt when given the option?

Actually, I laughed when I was editing these photos because she is holding onto the edge of the shirt in almost all of the pictures.  It’s a shirt and a security blanket all in one. 🙂

I thought a special pattern like this deserved a special fabric and I had one that I had been saving for just the right thing.  I got this Alexander Henry Pindar Paisley from the shop Sew Deja Vu in Stow Ohio, where my aunt Cindi works.  (Hi Aunt Cindi!!)  The print has a large elaborate floral pattern throughout the whole panel, and I wanted a pattern with no gathers or pleats so that it would really showcase the design.  I think this top worked out perfectly.
