The super basic tank top knows no boundaries. In all seasons and climates, this tank top belongs in every handmade wardrobe. Sew up a striped or spotted version to wear with your gathered skirts and cutoffs in the summer, and a solid version to wear under sweaters in the winter. Make it with nice lighter weight, tighter knit and wear it as an undershirt for bra-free days. (Then use the scraps to make matching underpants!)
This pattern was drafted for a sewing B cup and approx. 168 cm or 5ft.6in. Step-by-step illustrated instructions will guide you whether using a standard sewing machine only or in combination with a serger

SIZING + FABRIC
The super basic tank top is drafted for light- to mid-weight knits with 4-way stretch and an element of drape, such as jersey, bamboo or rayon jersey, rib knits, interlock or t-shirt weight merino with approx. 60% stretch and decent recovery. Similar fabrics with anywhere between 40% and 100% stretch will also work well, but may result in a slightly snugger or looser fit.
