Loose tank top from the japanese book “drape drape”.
I altered it to be quite a lot shorter, and also less wide, and subsequencely lost some of the drape in the original version.
A super-easy and fast project, there are only three seams, in the middle back and on the shoulders. The ribbon edge around the neck- and arm-openings took almost twice as long as all the other work (including preparing the pattern).
The last picture (black and white) is from the book, the original version.
