The Rumi Tank is a feminine and sporty racerback knit tank top and dress that will become a staple in your wardrobe. It is a quick pattern for experienced sewers, as well as those new to sewing with knits.
Both views have a deep scoop neck front and a narrow racerback, all bound with thin binding.
View A tank dress is fitted through the upper body and bust, then flares to a trapeze dress with a contrasting band at the hem, to match the contrasting binding around the straps.
View B tank top is fitted in the upper body, following your figure with a nipped in waist and slight flare at the hip.
The best fabrics for the Rumi Tank are lightweight knits, like those made of cotton tissue, rayon, silk, bamboo, and linen.
The Rumi Tank is part of the Christine Haynes Patterns Chop Chop collection, which are quick and easy to sew projects that are only available in PDF format. Unlike the main collection, the Chop Chop collection uses full color photographs for the step by step instructions, and illustrates the garments on dress forms instead of a figure. Otherwise they are the same quality patterns as the main collection.
The Rumi Tank pattern is sized from 0–18 and all sizes are included in the PDF.
This pattern's difficulty is rated at "two spools" which is perfect for an beginner sewer!
