A modern take on a vintage style, the Badminton House tank top features a flattering square yoke and a flowing, graceful silhouette. Whimsical ruching adds visual interest at the shoulders and empire waist, and snug bands of garter give everything a feminine fit and keep the voluminous stockinette from looking shapeless or baggy.

The garter stitch, smooth stockinette, and simple shaping make this an easy knit and ideal first garment project. Plus, thanks to the 13 sizes and 10 additional bust shaping options that can be mixed and matched, there are a total of 130 size choices to ensure the perfect fit, no matter your measurements.

To fit overbust size: 28 (30, 32, 34) (36, 38, 40) (42, 44, 46) (48, 50, 52)”/71 (76, 81, 86) (91, 97, 102) (107, 112, 117) (122, 127, 132) cm

To pick a size, measure your chest at the underarm, above the fullest part of the bust. This ensures proper fit at the shoulders regardless of cup size. To choose from the additional bust shaping options, subtract your overbust size from your full bust size. If you are in between sizes or shaping options, pick the smaller one.
