Drape Tank

Very relaxing long drapey tank. From a Japanese sewing book “Drape Drape”, again. I chose silk-touch cotton jersey, just $6/yd. It was a little annoying to hem neck and arm side with this spandex fabric, but the pattern was really simple.

    Thank you, all! I didn’t know there is English version. Thanks for your info, candyjoyce! Here is the link. I checked out vol.1 and 2 from a library, and traced some patterns. Tracing patterns was SO annoying, because original is layered with many different patterns in a limited space. But once you get the pattern, the technique is really simple. Especially, this tank’s pattern is only one piece!

    Love the tank / dress! Wanting to pick up Drape Drape but was concerned it would be a bit over my head.

      Do you know there is now an English Language version? I got the Japanese one for my birthday last year and just couldn’t fathom it, just ordered myself the English language version and although it could still be a bit tricky I think it should be manageable.
