Everyday Tank Blog Tour

See my full disclosure policy here.

Disclosure: I received this pattern for free in exchange for my review. I received no other compensation for this post. My opinions are my own.

The Everyday Tank from Serger Pepper is a fast, easy sew that comes with lots of options. I decided to use it to upcycle one of my husband's old sweaters into a sweater vest for our son.

I didn't really use the instructions in the pattern-I just looked at the pictures to get a basic idea of how to put it together, and went from there. It's hard to tell from the pictures, but there is a side panel detail. You can make it with contrast fabric. The extra seams give it a nice detail if you make it with all one fabric.

There are instructions for different ways to do the binding, but I just bagged all of them and attached the original sleeve and neck binding from the sweater.

I love it over a plaid shirt. It's perfect for the cooler weather we're starting to get. The layers are great too-easy to take off if the afternoon warms up.

Thanks for sharing your lovely vest: I have a thing for refashions and I always keep original hems/cuffs whenever I can!
