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 barb-be-que with jeans or summer trousers.

Easy. Different. Flattering.

>STYLE OPTIONS: Round neck and "V" neck

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

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.

Grey V Neck version is cotton/polyester blend

    Love the pattern!

    The instructions were easy to follow and I even learned a few new sewing techniques. I also liked how the instructions were specified if you had a serger or sewing machine - very helpful! I'm SUPER pleased with the finished product - and I couldn't have gotten the same results without the great instructions.

    Fantail Tank

    My first downloaded pattern and trepidation turned to enjoyment very quickly, thanks. The finished product needed very little tweaking and gained approval at my sewing group. Hawke Coture. I have since used a second pattern and was just as pleased.
