Joan, It is nice to see a pattern that will not only work for me at age 53, but my 2 daughters ages 20 and 28. The shirt-tail at the bottom makes it clean, finished and versatile! Tuck it in or leave it out...wear it to work w/a little jacket or with shorts, jeans,or a skirt, for that surprise weekend away! I thinj it would be a great travel top and can easily be rinsed out and ready to go the next day. Looks like it could be really fiber friendly. which of course means a yarn to please everyone! So I'm gonna start swatching...from sock to silk and a 50% wool- 50% cotton would be perfect for winter...I absolutely have got to stop myself, because this pattern makes of endless possibilities ...can hardly wait!

Don't forget, there is a free short sleeve pattern for this that turns the tank into a tee shirt. Find it here:

I have made this tank in baby yarn quite a few times. It is so versatile (a summer top, under a blazer) and the fit is terrific! I also appreciate the neckline, which is neither too revealing nor too prissy. Joan, thanks for sharing the pattern.
