Introducing the Cordon! Cordon, meaning tie or rope, gets its name from the drawstring side option. But that is just one of the many options that comes in the pattern. From hood, to v-neck to a dramatic scoop plus 2 other necklines, you can make Cordon for any occasion. From a smooth side in top length out of athletic knit or a knee length ruched dress from Modal, Cordon will be the pattern you use over and over again. As if that wasn’t enough, there’s even a unique nursing option. The side access for breastfeeding provides a little extra coverage for those who want it, without breaking up the front silhouette. Growing a family? Cordon has its own separate piece unique to make fit your growing baby bump. Cordon is the go to for a basic or dramatic tank. With all the options you will never grow tired of making it.

I loved sewing up this tank top for myself, such a great fit and easy nursing access so I can feed my baby on all our summer adventures! Going to be a summer wardrobe staple!

Being of an age, a tank isn’t normally for me but this one certainly is! I love the fitted shape, and good shoulder coverage. It can be layered up with a jacket for a smarter look or worn casually on its own. I have made the ruched and smooth top with a scoop neck and both work really well. Going to be making many more for Summer with the different neck lines.
It isn’t often one pattern delivers so much- thank you for a brilliant design.

This pattern is such a summer staple! It is super flattering, hugs your curves, and has so many amazing options to customize the look you want. I’m not expecting or nursing now either, but would have LOVED a top like this when I was, so how awesome to have those options too!
You will love this pattern! I’ve been wearing mine most days since I’ve sewn them. It will be in regular rotation in my pattern collection.

I made the hooded tank for my tween this was perfect for everyday wear and ticked the fashion box as well. It’s her favourite top, I’ve already made her 2 with more requested. Clear and easy to follow instructions suitable for all level of sewers.

I love how great this pattern makes me feel when I wear it. Really easy to follow directions and it comes together easily. I love the different options. The measurement chart was right on for me and I made the size the chart said with perfect results. I will for sure be making lots more with all the different options!

Simple instructions for a very flattery fit. Love the built in sway back.
I’m not a pattern hacker, so I’m always happy to try out patterns with nursing access, and this one is amazing! I love all the different options, and the side nursing access is such a bonus! This will be a summer staple for sure!

One of THE BEST nursing patterns I own! The instructions are very clear and easy to follow, and it doesn’t take a long time to sew either. I love that not only is this fitted but has some awesome side options to spruce it up some if you want! Glad I don’t have to hack anything and that everything is just laid out for me. Because of the location and design it’s hard to tell I’m even nursing in it. I made the hooded tank with drawstrings and I love that i can customize how long or short the shirt is based on how much I pull the strings.

Im no exaggerating when I say this is the perfect tank pattern! I sewed up the smooth side tank option in rayon spandex, and it’s the most comfortable top I own! I love how quick it is to make and how flattering it is on so many body types.
