drape drape No 12, loose drape tank top

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.

    I love it! It is so relaxed yet gorgeous! Did you drape it, or is it just from a book named “Drape drape”? (As in; did you drape it on an actual dress form?)

      Thanks! I made changes to the pattern from the book, so there was no draping involved actually…
