The Tara Tank
This Tank pattern comes in bust size 30”-44” and is a quick and versatile make which will become a wardrobe staple and can be used as a base block for future patterns.
The pattern comes with two neckline options- a high neck and midline. There are no fastenings on this garment- so it’s ideal for advanced beginners who are looking to increase their garment making skills but not yet ready for buttons or zips.
You will learn how to sew with bias binding and create an amazing and satisfying couture internal finish- but don’t just take my word for it…here’s what some of the testers said..
@the.tana.bana “Tara was a joy to sew and looks as good inside as on the outside!”
@leisurelyhomemaker “The Tara Tank from Make With Mandi is a lovely sew, that invites you to slow down and make a really quality garment. I would recommend it for intermediate sewers or advanced beginners who want to practise bias tape application”
