WHAT YOU'LL LEARN:
You'll learn how to fold up the tank top and use it as a template to cut out the bodice without a pattern, how to measure and cut the ruffle panel, how to sew it all together, how to make an elastic casing, and how to hem the edges for a finished blouse. These off the shoulder tops with gathered/ruffled flounce detailing remains one of the hottest trends even in 2019 and it's a great sewing project for petite to plus size frames!
