Making Multiples

I was about to start off this post with a bold-faced lie. Well, not exactly a lie, so much as being less than honest with myself. I had intended to open by saying that I almost never make multiples of things just like I almost never read the same book twice.
But, you know what? That's not true. In fact the opposite is true. Not that I read the same book twice, that part is accurate, but that I make multiples. Especially when it comes to garment sewing.
Here's proof:
See? I made all these, plus one I gave away, over the course of this past summer.
Don't get too impressesed though, they are beyond easy to make and very quick as well.
My pattern was Burda Style 7509 and it is everything a pattern should be: clear, simple, and capable of helping you craft a truly wearable item.
Somewhat off topic: I've promised myself that I would really, really learn Photoshop this year instead of relying on the same techniques I always use or tinkering around aimlessly and coming up with something I like, but can't repeat, so here's my "collage" of my Burda tanks. I still have so much to learn, but at least I'm taking the first step.
It was almost as fun to create the collage as it was to sew the tanks. I think I'll make multiples here too!

I "don't do" clothes, but maybe even I could do this! Thanks for sharing.

these are all great, and they really prove that the fabric makes the clothes. can you show us a photo of you wearing one?

Cute tops! And perfect timing, as I am desperate to make a few sleeveless tops, soon, and have been looking for a good pattern to make over and over and over again... So much for my plans for the day, I can see the next hour will be spend on Pattern Review and rummaging in my stash.

I also "don't do clothes" in fact, never have - but just might give this a try.....beyond easy, huh?? Love your new fabruc line!!

Love the top. I can make several sizes for the variation of size in my grand-daughters. Using some floral fabrics can make the top look so cute for a little girl.Thank you for the great idea and sharing during the shop hop
