Axis Tank D/E Cup - Paper Sewing Pattern
This pattern is currently available for presale, and will be available to ship at the end of August.
The Axis Tank is the ultimate comfortable bra. You can wear it alone, layered with another bra, or to sleep in. Worn with a shaped, supportive bra, the Axis Tank distributes tension around your torso, relieving tight spots and uncomfortable restriction. It’s just the thing to layer with sheer tops, and is a super comfortable option to wear under sweaters and layers. Two neckline options work with a range of clothing styles, and both options are available with beautiful geometric design lines, creating panels that can be used for color blocking or trim insertion.
GARMENT SPECIFICS The Axis Tank is an unlined cropped tank top bralette, designed to be worn as a comfort or layering garment. It is entirely elastic free. Four different views feature the tank with scooped and high necklines, with different design panels. View One + Three feature only two seams in the garment body, curving around the bust dart and along the side. View Two + Four has decorative colorblock panels inspired by vintage lingerie. All openings are finished with a super easy binding method using elastic or your garment fabric.
