Tattoo Tank by Marly Bird
Knit in Classic Elite Verde Allegoro
Bound off in summer 2012
Why I made this: I had gotten a shocking pink wrap skirt with my tax return a few years ago and wanted to make a tee shirt to wear with it. Since I was about to leave the yarn store where I used to work, I made this my going-away gift to myself.
What I liked about it: I really love the color. I also like the lace insert on the back.
What I don’t like about it: Everything. Here, let’s narrow it down: the torso is short, the silhouette is a little too boxy, the picot hem is bulky, and the sleeves hit at a bad place for my arms. Apart from that, it’s the perfect garment.
Its fate: Have you ever tried to frog linen? Good luck with that. Off to the Goodwill this goes.
