Offering cool summer comfort with a silken sheen, the Papeda tank has split side hems and a lovely lace yoke. Subtle shaping details flatter a range of figure types.

Papeda begins with the Front and Back hems worked separately, back and forth. The hems are joined and the Body is worked in the round to the underarm. Then the upper Front and Back are worked separately, back and forth. A lace Yoke is worked separately and sewn to the Body to create the top of the armholes and shoulders. The lace pattern is provided in both chart and written formats.
