Sometimes a contrasting collar makes all the difference, and the Sparrow Top definitely has unique written all over it. Liola Designs puts a spin on the standard basic tank pattern. With darts, french seams and an interfaced contrasting collar, this is without a doubt the most unique tank top pattern we've come across. Make a lightweight cotton version and pair it with skinny jeans for everyday wear. Or make a drapey, rayon version and layer this tank under a blazer or cardigan. Either way this may be the most worn item in your handmade wardrobe.
