Draped Tank by Seamingly Smitten

You might remember my Seamingly Smitten spring wardrobe post last year, where I sewed up a bunch of items that I could wear through the spring and summer. Well, The new Draped Tank with Handkerchief Hem is another staple added to my wardrobe!

I love to play with fancy fabrics and such for my kids, but when it comes to sewing for me, I love practical! I spend my days chasing the toddler (yep, he is a runner!) and getting down on the floor or ground to play, so I need pieces that give me the freedom to keep up! I love that this top is a kick up from my usual tank top or t-shirt. It allows me to be mom but still be stylish!

This pattern  creates a draped tank with a handkerchief hem.


sizes XS-XXXL.

3 hem lengths and widths  

scoop front neckline

handkerchief hem

3 sleeve lengths

optional high/low hem

neckline binding or  simple hem


The Women’s Draped Tank can be made in something soft with great drape, both in knit and wovens! I used a beautiful crepe I found and just had to have! I already have a couple planned in knit for this summer!

The pattern pieces are all one piece, which makes for quick cutting and sewing! There are a couple different binding and hem options included in the pattern, so you can pick which one works best for your fabric. I did a traditional hem for this one.

I would love to see this done as a dress! You can find it HERE on the new  Seamingly Smitten website!


Happy Sewing!
