⏩ Story of this Pattern⏪ Adél wore a top like this often during our last few lessons together. Despite our toasty top-floor classroom in the ever-warmer spring and all the pressures of her upcoming exams, she always seemed cool, calm, and elegant.
⏩ Details ⏪ This is a beautiful knit tank top with a decorative front panel. Slight gathers give fullness in the bust and a bit of extra room over the stomach. The top is fitted enough to be flattering but loose enough to stay cool in even the hottest weather.
The decorative panel on the front provides almost limitless possibilities for customizing your top - leave it plain and create a wardrobe basic to wear again and again; use lace or mesh for a sexier version; incorporate a special piece of fabric you’ve been saving; or use the small space as a canvas for embroidery or other embellishment.
The top uses an all-in-one facing for an easy clean finish on the arm and neck holes.

⏩ Difficulty⏪ Intermediate. This pattern assumes the sewer is familiar with techniques such as sewing straight and curved seams, applying fusible interfacing, and sewing knit fabrics with straight and stretch seams. Other techniques (such as tips for gathering knit fabrics) are explained in detail.
You should also be familiar with how to print and assemble pdf patterns, as this pattern doesn’t include any separate instructions for doing so.
⏩ Sizes ⏪ This pattern is available in European sizes 34 to 48. See the third picture above for exact measurements and sizing information.
⏩ Fabrics and Notions ⏪ This top is designed for light- to medium-weight knit fabrics such as jersey. You will need 1.1 meters of 150 cm wide fabric (1¼ yards of 60” wide) or 1.6 meters of 115 cm wide fabric (1¾ yards of 45” wide). If your fabric has a print that you would like to match (stripes, for example), you may need more fabric. If your fabric will shrink during washing, buy extra so you don’t end up short!
You will also need thread matching your main fabric. Depending on your decorative panel, you may need other supplies (extra scraps of fabric, lace, ribbon, etc).
