Just when we thought that all the big trends of the 90s had been relaunched, we sew tube tops again! After the bucket hat pattern, scrunchie pattern, tie dye and crop top pattern, the tube top sewing pattern is now celebrating its revival.

The bandeau sewing pattern is not only incredibly comfortable in these tropical temperatures, it is also the perfect sewing project for beginners. The best thing about the bandeau sewing pattern? You can sew two bandeau tops in one, as the simple tube top sewing pattern is reversible. Simply choose two contrasting fabrics and sew them together! We show you how in the illustrated, written sewing instructions and the detailed tube top sewing tutorial.

What do you learn from the tube top sewing pattern? You will learn all about shirring elastic and sewing elastic bands. You can elastic bands to sew a strapless top that fits your body perfectly. This is because the elastic bands are cut for your own body measurements. If you want to learn more about shirring elastic and sewing elastic bands, read the free blog article How To Sew Elastic Band.

Given all these advantages, it is truly astonishing that the comeback of the tube top sewing pattern has taken this long!
