I used Threads Drape neck tutorial to make a pattern from my tank sloper. I had 2 yards of beautiful Maggy London ITY knit in Midnight blue leftover from the Muse Natalie dress I made earlier this year. Blogged about here

The tank only took 1 yard of the fabric and I couldn't decide if I should use the other yard for sleeves or make another tank with it. I did want sleeveless........... so I just made another tank, using my basic tank sloper.

$3.50 per tank! What a deal!
Ok, I had my Dear Daughter take a few pictures of me wearing the drape neck tank. I am no model, but I really LOVE this tank. It fits perfect at the shoulders and the drape is perfect, no bra showing. A very modest neckline with style!
