HP 1206 DL Fast & Fabulous Layering Tanks
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.

I absolutely LOVE these tops - (bought pattern at the beginning of lockdown 1 uk)! Yes, i had to alter the pattern a bit - lengthen the waist(always with me!!), (then alter the proportions even more!). IT WAS WORTH IT! did i say I LOVE THESE TOPS? I make most of them in voile now (go on try it - you won't regret), i found lawns just a trifle too heavy - even with washing. I am constantly on the look out for beautiful print chiffons to layer over elbow length tees - oh be still my beating heart! Really becoming a go to staple in each season for an easy to wear but feel "finished" casual look. Do try please, once you've fussed around with your fit you've got a wardrobe staple you can knock out in a couple of hours!
