Keep the whole family cool with this easy-to-make racer back tank top!

This racer back vest can be used for many occasions. Use jersey fabric with a summery print for a perfect holiday staple, or use sporty lycra style fabrics to make your own gym, yoga or dance wear!

This is a fairly fitted top, without being overly tight. The softer/stretchier the fabric, the more generous the sizing will appear.

*Alternatively you can now opt for a classic pattern (in colour!) for the adult sizes, where all sizes are printed together and you trace the size you need. This option is recommended for more experienced dressmakers who wish to grade between sizes. Choose the adult size option in the size drop-down menu called "classic pattern".
