It’s release day! Some years ago, 4 to be exact, we released the Essential Tank. We hadn’t added the youth version to the pattern line-up and after years of requests, we thought it would be a great addition while we updated the Essential Tank to include our extended sizes.
The Essential Tank still ranks as one of the most popular and well, essential pieces that many P4P members rave about and now your littles can wear them too!
The Essential Tank received an update to include our extended sizes up to Plus 5x. The original options remained, but don’t worry there are plenty to choose from while the Youth Essential Tank is brand new! You can choose from 2 backs (racerback and straight tank straps) and a multitude of hem lengths that include: shirt, curved hem, tunic, above knee dress and maxi dress lengths. You can also finish y our neckline and armholes with traditional t-shirt bands or binding. Both patterns include all the usual digital file formats and the most recently requested projector files!
