It is a semi loose tank top with high or low arm scye options. This is a ‘true’ tank/vest style fit. This is not a t-shirt fit with no sleeves.
The arm scyes reflect this and are lower and wider.. The difference between the high and low arm scyes is 1.75cm (2/3”). The ease around the body is around 4cm depending on fabric choice.
You will need either a sewing machine with a stretch stitch or an overlocker/serger.
Threads suitable for the stretch fabric of choice.
Top stitching – a walking foot is recommended if using a sewing machine for top stitching.
The Plain tank pattern is suitable for 2 or 4 way stretch (knits, jersey) fabrics with a 50%+ stretch in one direction.
The Blocking pattern options must use 4 way stretch material for the blocking stripes. Cotton lycra is recommended (light and medium weight CL will give the best results).
Pattern Example Options
All the example options can be reversed and used with themselves or the other options. The shoulder stripe and body stripe full blocking options can be combined to make the wrap around version (this is a challenge sew!)
All include high/low scye arm scye options.
