Kila Tank
Allie Olson

$16.00 each

The Kila Tank sewing pattern by Allie Olson Sewing Patterns is a fitted tank top designed for stretchy knit fabrics.  A slight racerback design gives this top a sporty look, but won’t reveal conventional bra straps.  Kila’s deep scoop neckline and armholes are finished with a bulk-free binding method that mimics ready-to-wear techniques.

The Kila Tank has several inches of negative ease making it a great basic layering tank top.  Kila can be tucked into high-waist pants, overalls, and skirts.  Because it’s sewn in super stretchy fabrics, Kila is also a great workout or pajama top for hot weather.

The Kila Tank paper pattern includes both the original sizing block, based on a B-cup figure, as well as the curvy sizing block, based on a D-cup figure.  Please utilize the measurement chart in the gallery to determine your fabric requirements based on both size and block shape/cup size.

The pattern envelope contains a paper pattern printed double-sided on lightweight copy paper that is intended for you to trace off the size(s) you need, and printed step-by-step instructions with illustrations.
