Alabama Chanin website during one of her great sales, and it is a treasure trove of all her patterns in one place, as well as a compilation of all her techniques as well how to adjust patterns to fit. There was no problem printing the pattern from the included CD, though as a heads up..... you can't just print the pattern you want. You have to print all the tiles to go with the sheet of patterns. For instance, this 6-panel Tank Top is also part of the 6-Panel Camisole Top both from her Alabama Studio Style book.... as well as the corresponding tunic and dresses and skirt.... so all printed because they are nested together. That's okay as I want to make the skirt one day too.

The princess seams drew me to choosing this top, along with the flare at the waist.Alabama Chanin's white, medium weight, 100% organic cotton fabric. I paid @$26.00 per yard. This top takes a mere yard. And while we are talking about fabric..... this fabric is so soft and has a most luxurious feeling..... different than any other cotton jersey I've felt before. The inner seams were constructed with double strands of Coats and Clark Button Craft Thread, with the felled seams in single strands. Love the way the hand-stitched seams make their own design detail. As you can see from the photo below, this top measures 25" from shoulder seam to hemline.... and that's what mine measured too.
