Great fitting tank, easy to put together, I will be making many more!


Despite my vacillation I noted regarding sizing, since I didn't make a muslin, cause when you "sew chaotically" you can't be bothered!!!!, I cut what I figured would be a bit on the large side so I would have room manipulate the fit. In the end, I think it is well sized as best as one can, accommodating the various stretch different knits may have.
