Soft Tank Tunic patternPetra Breakstone
Soft Tank Tunic
A feminine a-line shape tank-tunic with sweet lace in both, front and back, a detailed neckline with a bit of positive ease make for a lovely top that can be worn over a tank, camisole, long sleeve T-shirt or a pretty blouse.
This pattern was inspired by a lovely lady who liked my Soft Tee wanting the same detail, only in a tank top.
