V-neck tank bodice
*These patterns may be used for personal use, or to sell the creation made from the patterns.
About this design: This is a fun, more detailed spin on the typical v-neck bodice, with a bit more room in the bust area.
Best Paired With: All skirts. On shoulder slim, gathered, and flutter sleeves.
Variations: Gather and overlap in the front, or leave a gap in the front for more cleavage. Attach to a skirt, or make as a separate piece.
Can also be added to a skirt and left completely open in the center front, with a drawstring closure.
Sizes: Small, Medium, Large and XL patterns provide. Please view the measurement table provided, to find which size you need.
Materials: If you finish the bodice with an overlap and closed front, then you’ll want to use knit or any type of stretch fabric. If you finish the bodice with an open front, for a wrap style gown or robe with drawstring closure, you can use any woven/non-stretch material, like chiffon, polyester, or cotton.
Fabric Width: Approx. 58 - 60 inches (this is a standard width).
Fabric Length: Use the same lengths for both the fashion fabric and lining.
