Between the princess seaming, and the curved hem, this is a most flattering tank. I love the option to color block to make great use of precious scraps. I modified a shelf bra and wear mine year round. As a stand alone in warmer months, and a layering piece when it is cooler, Spruce is a staple! In a cotton lycra or nylon lycra circular knit, it is worth a little extra time to make a really upscale top.
This pattern fits me like a glove and looks so sporty and super figure flattering with the lines. After making a couple so far, I want to try making an all solid one. Had fun picking the fabrics for 2-tone though.
I've used this pattern as written to make a workout top, and by adding slightly more ease and longer sleeves, a top for work. Both have attracted many compliments from others! It was great to have the different cup-sized pattern, and I didn't need to adjust the bust line.
