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
