The Clarke top will help you make the most of your fabric stash. It can be sewn in both wovens and knits, and there’s an option to cut on the bias. This bra-friendly tank finishes with an all-in-one facing, and the back seams are perfect for color-blocking and stash-busting. We challenge you to find a fabric you can’t use for this top!
