Silk Tank

I've been working on several sewing projects, so I wanted to share one of many [to be posted] with you. Hopefully it will inspire you to design your own fun stuff to wear. 

Silk Tank: light, fashionable and versatile. The back is much longer than the front, in case you like to wear leggings, or leather pants, it covers the bum and makes it look sophisticated. Can also be layered with short sweaters. 

Very easy to make, especially if you have a serger. I just got one for Festivus [for the rest of us] and I must say it's the best thing ever. 

You will need 1 yard of fabric. I made the red one out of Crepe de Chine, and the blue one out of thicker silk chiffon [you would want something that drapes nicely]. Here are the patterns for the shirt front and back [all you need to do is print it and then tape together at corresponding numbers]. Size small, but it's pretty easy to grade up or down.

Enjoy! :)


  1. Did you finish the edges? it looks like you just left it.

  2. Yes, hemline is serged with rolled hem setting. Neck and armholes are turned over twice.
