Brooklyn, New Yo...
This tank is a construction of my own design. For some time, I’ve been thinking about designing clothes that are simple to cut, simple to wear, and waste no fabric.
This tank is the first of the fruition of that idea.
I call this the rectangle tank because it is cut from rectangles. My favorite part of this design is that, even though the pieces are cut straight and virtually NO fabric went into the scrap heap, the fabric hangs on your body on the bias. How awesome is that?
This tank is made from 4 different lightweight silks. There are two layers, with the underlayer showing through the top layer. It looks pretty cool.
The shirt is reversible, and has pretty candycane straps. You can be creative with the way you tie these straps: assymetrical, halter, etc. Exposed French seams, raw hem with a straight stitch at 1/4" to keep the fray in check.
various lightweight silks, the flowered panels are chiffon
Make something special and practical for your friends and family this holiday season!
