The linen used to knit this asymmetrical tank gives the pleats a
sculptural quality. The pleats can be left un-pressed for a high relief
effect or pressed into sharp pleats that hold their shape well in the
linen fabric. Finished with knitted facing along neckline, armholes
and hem, the edges of this stockinette top will always lay in place.

Front and Back are worked flat from the bottom up. Shoulder, side
seams, and pleats are sewn, then Neck Facing is picked up and
worked flat, then front neck is sewn up. Armhole Facings are
worked in the round. Facing are whip stitched in place.
