A sister top to the Fantail Tank but with full length raglan sleeves. Easy to sew with a designer twist, the center front hem gather adds unique interest and the lowered back hem ensures the top is flattering around the derriere. A lovely line is created from the center front down along the hip and around the rear hem creating a "fantail". The Fantail Shirt is a simple sew and the curved hem made easy with bias binding.
This is a trans-seasonal top that can take you from smart casual to work.
Easy. Different. Flattering and is a perfect match with the Sidewinder Pants.
STYLE OPTIONS: Round neck and "V" neck in a SHIRT or SWEATSHIRT option. Refer design sketch in product images.

For printing in A4 or US Letter on a home printer. Printing at home is the most cost-effective, and sticking your pattern tiles together to make your full size pattern is easy. Further information for printing at home can be found in our Resources section here.
3. AO Pattern file
AO is a large scale file designed to be printed at a Print Copy Shop. You cannot print this on your home printer as it is too big. If you choose to use this large file you will pay extra to have it printed but you do not have to stick anything together.
You can use the ADOBE LAYERS FEATURE to open the PAH pattern file and print only the size you need (and eliminate the "noise" of the unwanted sizes). You can also use the URL and bookmark links within the file to quickly access information and support. Download Adobe Reader for free (for Windows and Mac) here.
