Fantail Tank

Regular price $16.50

Unit price per 


A special sleeveless top that is 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 Tank is a simple sew and the curved hem made easy with bias binding.

Perfect on a hot day worn with shorts or to an evening BBQ with jeans or summer trousers.

Easy. Different. Flattering.

STYLE OPTIONS: Round neck and "V" neck

Please refer to the FABRIC REQUIREMENT CHART as one of the last images on this product listing. You can magnify this image if viewing it on a mobile phone whilst in a fabric store.

WOVEN fabrics : We recommend cotton, rayon, viscose, polyester crepe and light weight linen. Refer to the product images noting how the different fabrics respond to the center front gather. A crisp cotton gives a lovely gather definition, whilst a softer draping fabric like rayon produces a softer gather.

Our samples are made up as follows:
Main image- round neck option in mustard linen
Grey V Neck version is cotton/polyester blend
White Round Neck in cotton lawn


Confident Beginner | Easy Intermediate (4/10).
The Fantail Tank can be sewn with or without an overlocker (serger) to neaten the seams.


The PDF pattern is available in sizes 8-22. 

Select your size and you will also receive the sizes above and below to allow for grading between if you need. This pattern is a loose fit, so you might like to err on the smaller size if you are having trouble deciding. Refer the Size Chart for help if you need. 


After your payment is processed you will receive an email with links to instantly download the following:

1. Print-at-home file including instructions (on A4 or letter paper). This file includes instructions on how to sew up the Fantail Tank, links to a video tutorial and the Pattern Tiles to print and compile at home. This file lets you get started immediately.

    I love my tank - it is modern, easy and fast to sew. I also really appreciate your advice when it came to pick the size.

    Unable to download the pattern. I reached out to you and did not get a response. My plan was to buy another pattern. If I cannot download a pattern I cannot purchase from you. Thanks Annie

    The Sewing Revival

    Hello Ann, Our records tell us you have in fact downloaded the pattern files on 4 July. You clicked the download link three times for both the AO (Large scale for Print Shop only) and PAH (Print-at-home) pattern file which includes the instructions (maybe you did this on your phone without realizing?). As soon as you click the download link, the files appear in the bottom LH corner of your screen (it's easy to miss this if you have not done this before). The idea is to click it and open the file and then save this to your computer (these instructions are on order confirmation and download emails you have received). Once you click "download" the files are also automatically saved on your device (that's why we recommend you do this at least once on a laptop or desktop not a mobile phone). Please take a look in the Downloads folder (or sometimes the Document folder) or complete a search on your device to locate the files. You can always email us at for more help if you require. Kind regards, Janine

    Fantail Top - Loved it

    Learnt a new technique for sewing the armhole facings - thanks. Great design. Loved it. Easy to sew and get done in an afternoon. Made for some winter layering but will definitely sew some summer versions too.
