This Tata Twist Tank sewing pattern features a unique twist detail at the center front that flatters the bust, as well as a scoop back that can be worn in the front or back. The top is fully self-lined, eliminating the need for hemming, and the design is perfect for summer days or layering under jackets and cardigans.
It is aimed at adventurous beginners to intermediate sewists. A great introduction to sewing knits that comes together with a unique construction method.
The tank can be sewn using either a sewing machine or overlocker/serger.

Made the first one using the projector file. But I traced the pattern rather than cutting the fabric straight as its bamboo jersey which was a bitty slippy. The pattern is true to size. I sized down as suggested because it was quite stretchy fabric. I’m making a few more as I’m off to Thailand in December. Might add some bra pads on the next one too.
