Introducing the Resolution Bra and Tank

5 out of 4 Patterns Small Resolution Contrast with HTVWelcome to 2016!  The first pattern for 2016 is the Resolution Bra and Tank.  I always love sharing a little bit of myself when I introduce new patterns, so here is how this pattern came to life…

I really, really wanted a workout tank that I could put cute heat-transfer-vinyl sayings on because while I love the ones in the store, I thought it would be a lot more fun to make my own.

While I was trying to really decide what to include with the pattern, I thought, “I love colorblocking!” and my brain thought, “You just did three patterns with colorblocking!”  So, I started to look at how I could incorporate a color statement, but something a little different.  It was a challenge for me!  I love having little challenges in each pattern because it keeps my brain from getting bored.  I don’t have a lot of quick and easy patterns in the store because I’m looking for ways to up my sewing game AND help you improve yours!  Yes.  I said that out loud!

The Resolution Bra and Tank IS a quick and easy pattern, but you get this cool contrast tank where the contrast back wraps a little farther than the side seams so it can be seen from the front.  It’s just a small change, but it was a big change in the drafting of the pattern.  I love how it turned out, and I think you will too.

Included with the pattern, you get:

  • a racerback sports bra,
  • a solid racerback tank,
  • a contrast racerback tank,
  • 3 hem options- straight, curved, or a band, and
  • a regular or low neckline.

This is a workout staple for me.  I love having something I can put together quickly that will make me smile when I’m in the middle of a tough workout.  Some of my upcoming tanks will include witty sayings such as, “I’m classy, but sometimes I cuss,” “Run like the Doctor told you to,” or “Yes, they’re all mine.”  (I get asked almost every day if all of my kids are mine!)  You can see a sneak peek of one of my tanks that I haven’t quite finished on Instagram.  Do you follow 5 out of 4 Patterns on Instagram yet?

What is something funny you’d love to see on a workout tank?

Here are some of the great versions of the Resolution Bra and Tank that my awesome testers made.  I hope you enjoy this pattern as much as I do!
