Please welcome Itch to Stitch’s latest pattern, the Sentosa Tank!
I already had a few opportunities to wear the Sentosa this month because we had a heatwave! So I dug up my shorts from the back of my closet and put on my Sentosa to walk along the beach. I think wherever you are in the world, there will be a heatwave or two waiting for you this year, and you will be happy to have this unique tank top to wear.
But even if you are not a tank top wearer, I think the Sentosa will be great as a base layer under a jacket or a cardigan. The beauty of having a tank top underneath a cardigan is that no sleeve will bunch up and create bulk.
The Sentosa is designed to be a tank top and it does not come with sleeves. As many of you know, when I create a garment, I draft the sleeve specifically for the armhole, taking into account the intended style with the appropriate wearing and design ease. The armhole of a tank top is different from the armhole of a garment with sleeves on my patterns. The sleeves of other Itch to Stitch patterns will not fit the armhole of the Sentosa perfectly without re-drafting. Hence, if you are going to ask me which sleeves will fit this tank, I am afraid I cannot recommend one to you.
