Sewing Project: Fishy Tank (New Look 6900)

I made this tank a few years ago and it is one of those projects that I have absolutely loved! It was really easy to sew, fits great and I always get a ton of compliments every time I wear it. 

I got the inspiration when I came across this adorable fish print cotton at a quilt shop with my mom. Not being one for quilts, I decided to make a shirt instead. I picked up this New Look pattern at Walmart for just about $2.50. I'm not really a big fan of Walmart in general, but I have to say I do love those cheap patterns, especially when, like this one, they turn out to be a hit!

One thing I really like about the pattern is that it was both simple to sew and versatile. There are a ton of looks you could create just playing around with fabrics, color combinations, and details. I am planning on making at least one more of these tops in the near future!

Thanks for looking and have a happy Wednesday!


  1. Lovely! I have this pattern in my stash and I'm definitely going to have to give it out!

  2. Ooh! I may need to look for that pattern at my Walmart. Really, really cute!
