The Aushui Tank includes 3 different styles which can be mixed and matched. This close-fitting top is designed to fall to the high hip which gives the wearer a polished look. The square neckline and wide straps cover undergarment straps for worry-free wearing.
View A is the simplest tank to sew and would be a great “first knits” project. It has a solid front and regular hem.
View B features a regular hem with buttoned front. If you’ve been intimidated by buttons in the past then this style is for you. Just follow our easy tutorial to sew buttons and buttonholes with two simple zig zag stitches!
View C includes a buttoned front and tie hem. You can choose to tie the front high or low to adjust the length of the tank.
