Perfect Base Tank Top
The key to creating perfect layering pieces is to make them in a very fine gauge, so they add visual interest without adding bulk or raising your temperature past the point of comfort. And of course the trick to living through a project in a very fine gauge without dropping over from boredom is to choose an interesting stitch pattern!
If you are a tucker rather than a blouser – and yes I am talking about hems here! – make the tank top a bit longer by adding a few inches before beginning the waist shaping.
