Create a beautiful stylish tank top with curved sleeves that form a curved X mark together with the neckline on your back. The most interesting thing about this top is the colorful pattern at the back. There’s a differently colored line going from the bottom to the top along the middle. It’s as wide as the top at the bottom, but it narrows down to one-third of the top width for most of its length, forming a reverse funnel shape.

Sew a tank top that you can wear under a light jacket or by itself, thanks to its subtly elegant yet casual look with a barely noticeable flutter drop and not-so-regular shoulder straps. They seem plain but they mildly curve to the inside to expose your shoulders more. The neckline is high and rounded, much like those of luxurious evening dresses.
