*This is the classic paper pattern version; if you need
the print-at-home version on A4 and letter sized paper,
Maybe you rock a sleeveless look, maybe you just
need a chic layer under a cardigan or jacket...either
way, you’ll love these fab wardrobe essentials.
Choose a fluid blouse weight fabric like georgette,
washed linen, charmeuse, rayon, voile, or crepe.
Drape-y knits like ITY, rayon silk(y) jersey or linen
work well too.
Pull-over, semi-fitted, sleeveless tanks have a ‘V’ neck
and a very gentle ‘A’ line silhouette. Front and back
shoulder darts add subtle bust shaping. Neckline &
armholes are faced; tanks finish with a narrow hem.
Choose the chic-simple plain version, try the softly
gathered peplum, or go for the faux-shirt-tail.
Of course, these modern classics will dress up your
jeans beautifully, but also think about wearing these
tanks over a matching or a contrasting skirt or pant
for a great warm weather outfit, or add a cardigan for
a great cool weather option. Try any of these with
beauties with a matching cardigan for a modern twinset
look, or simply slip them underneath your
favorite blazer, biker or bomber jacket.

Nice clean finish tank top patter. I made it in a poly crepe and it turned out very nice. The finish on the armholes was very clean, burrito method FTW!
Very fast except when it comes to following the instructions for doing the armholes which clearly have stumped even my very spatially oriented mathematician husband.
Shirt is indeed very loose and potentially not super flattering for those of us sizes 10-12.
