Crochet Tank Top A Designer Pattern To Delight Yourself!

 
Crochet Tank Top Pattern
I designed this crochet tank top pattern initially for myself. After much window shopping, I realized that there were very limited choices of oversized tank tops for plus sized women. Being a crochet designer myself, I took this as a small challenge and went ahead to design a tank top for myself!

It's just in the sub-conscious minds of women that they are as overweight, fat or ugly. I like to think that no women is ugly. They just do not know how to look beautiful! This crochet tank top pattern is an effort to prove that all women even plus size women have a right to look attractive.


My Inspiration Behind Making This Crochet Tank Top

 

Crochet Tank Top Pattern
Crochet Tank Top Pattern Purple Blue

I wanted to make a simple design which fitted perfectly to accents the gorgeous curves of a woman & hopefully make them feel beautiful about themselves. I read somewhere that clothes with vertical stripes in a design can make a person look slimmer and taller. Hence, the vertical stripes that forms the major portion of this design. The tank top fashion has been in vogue for very long and always have been the first choice of ladies!

There is a short interesting story why I named this tank top as Turquoise Delight. I saw this movie, "Chronicles of Narnia" & really loved the name, "Turkish Delight" so much that it stuck in my mind. When I was thinking about a name for this top, something delight sounded fun. The color of the yarn I used is almost turquoise, so I simply named it "Turquoise Delight".

This unique women's tank top is also known as camisole, blouse, pullover, sleeveless shirts, etc. In this designer pattern, you will learn how to crochet tank top with easy to understand step by step instructions along with the video tutorials.

Dupioni Silk: The Great Indian Silk Fabric Tour With Mamta

What is Dupioni Silk?
Dupioni Silk is one of the most versatile type of fabrics available today. It is hand woven or hand spun and identified by its horizontal lines known as slubs caused due to uneven thickness of the warp. It is often blended with 2 colors which gives it a shimmering look.

Indian Silk Fabrics


Because of the handmade nature of this fabric, you will see some occasional irregularities in its look. Dupioni or Dupion is easy to cut material. Unlike other fabric, you can also sew this fabric without any efforts. The texture of this strongest natural fabric is little coarse and rough which also makes it perfect for formal occasion clothing.

As the name suggests, dupion means double or two of a kind. In other words, when two lovely soul mates silkworms come together to spin their cocoon, they produce this aesthetic fabric for you.

Dupioni Silk Fabric

Where is this silk material made?
The obvious answer is wherever there are silkworms! India is the hub of dupioni silk fabric. There are variety of different types of silk. In fact, the term, ‘Ahimsa Silk’ or ‘Peace Silk’ was originated in India. Of course, there are other countries, too like China and Southeast Asia, etc who also make some beautiful silk.

Due to its inherent properties, it is crisp and wrinkle free. That does not mean that you cannot crease it. That is where this fabric will adapt and crease where you want it. Depending upon the origin of the fabric, Dupioni is either lightweight or medium weight fabric.

The best part of this lustrous material is that it is totally reversible which means it can be used both sides. It is an excellent choice for upholstery like making silk curtains, drapery, etc. However, to make the best use of this fabric, a heavy underlining is required so as to protect this natural fabric from direct sunlight.

Silk Fabric


Another magical property of dupioni silk is that it will always reflect a different tone of color depending upon the light source and time of the day. It is almost impossible to capture the true color of this wonderful natural often bright colored fabric. It also gets cool in summer and a little warm in winter.

You may ask: Who Uses This Silk Fabric? My answer would be: Are you serious?! Look around you. Dupioni silk fabric is the first and preferred fabrics for bridesmaid dresses in the western culture. It is the most preferred fabric for wedding gowns or bridal fabric, upholstery, formal clothing, etc.

With all said that, the downside of these fine silk fabric is that it does not have stretchable capability. In fact, you can expect a minor shrinkage if you hand wash this sustainable fabric.

Dupion Silk


Washing Instructions For Silk Material:
Hand wash will soften this fabric but will also tend to remove its coarseness which is its inherent characteristics. The best way to take care of these fabric especially the raw silk is to dry clean it at least for the first time. In that way, this bright colored fabric will maintain its natural luster. On the other hand, art silk can be hand washed. 

Types of silk fabric: There are several varieties of silk available today in the market. In my etsy shop, I sell 3 types of silk:

Raw Silk Fabrics:
It is one of the purest silk fabric. No blending of any other material is used in this type. It is also expensive compared to dupioni and obviously art silk or faux silk fabric. A decent quality pure heavy silk fabric can cost you between $35 to $70 a yard depending upon the fabric count and whether it is Ahimsa Peace Silk or not. 

Dupioni Silk or Dupion:
In general, it is 50% pure silk and 50% is either polyster or cotton material. In short, it is a blended material and also one of the popular silk fabric in my shop. A good quality dupioni silk may cost anything between 12 to 20 dollars a yard.

Dupioni Silk By The Yard


Art Silk/ Faux Silk / Fake Silk:
This kind of fabric gives a silk 'look' but is not a silk. In fact, it is not even blended silk and is very cheap. Many times, the customers who come to my shop confide in me that they bought fabric thinking that it was dupioni or raw silk but it were faux silk. They found it cheap somewhere and to save some dollars got duped. Even Art silk fabric can be put to various types of purposes. It is very cheap and gives excellent lustrous silk look. Some people who don't want to spend a lot usually prefer this fabric. 

Recommended Uses of Dupioni Silk Fabric
It is the best fabric choice of making the following outfits: Bridesmaid gowns or wedding dress, flower girl dress, ball gowns, christening gowns, jackets, skirts, silky blouses, formal suits, silk flowers, etc. It can also be used as upholstery, drapery, curtains, valence/valance, roman shades, window shades, kitchen window treatments, etc. It is also be used as quilt fabric or sewing fabric.


You can also visit my etsy store to buy these beautiful dupioni silk fabric.
