Build Your Wardrobe with the Clarke Top
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!
Daryn is wearing a size 16 Clarke top shortened by 1 1/2” with 2” removed from the bust. Her measurements are 42”, 35 1/2”, 46 3/4” and she is 5’8”.

Just a reminder that you can make this tank in knits and wovens. If you use a woven, there’s an option to cut on the bias. Look for light and medium-weight wovens such as lightweight denim, lawn, chambray, linen, Swiss dot, Tencel, rayon challis, crepe, and silk.
Or pick light or medium-weight knits, such as jersey, merino, bamboo, and baby rib.
