Our IL019 medium weight linen is ideal for both of these patterns.

Hello, wondering if I measure my widest part of my body and then just add length to the top and making sure my widest part is considered and it will be roomy enough for me, do you think this would work as a dress? Thank you x

Yes, you can always play around with the pattern to adjust it to make it your own design! If you would prefer a pattern already made up, look for our Mona Trapeze dress pattern.

Lauren • January 27, 2024

Hallo, many thanks for the cute pattern. Does the pattern include a seam allowance? Kind regards from Germany - Monika

Hi, love this pattern, but I'm a UK size 12 but large bust, so wondering if its suitable - its hard to see from the photos but it doesn't look as if it has darts?

hansford • July 21, 2023
Lauren profile image F|S Team

Hello, this is a lovely basic pattern without darts, but if you are full busted, you can always add them in when you do a full bust adjustment. If you need a tutorial for this we have one on our blog here:

Yes, the pattern is our Magda Pants.

Hello ! Is there a way to get this pattern in a one piece download for a large scale printer ?

Lauren • July 5, 2023
Lauren profile image F|S Team

Our free patterns are only available in A4/Letter format.

Lauren • July 5, 2023

I don't have a printer, and am having trouble getting this printed out. My local print shop uses only letter size paper. When they load the file in Microsoft Word and print, the 2" square is correct, but a part of each page is cut off at the edge. I am in Central America, so there is no Kinko's or other nationwide print shop here. Can you recommend an online print shop for this?

Kate • March 11, 2023
Lauren profile image F|S Team

Hello, they may need to center the page to ensure one side isn't getting cut off.

Lauren • March 11, 2023

Where can I find sewing instructions for the Phoebe Tank?

Celeste • March 1, 2023

Simply go to our blog, The Thread: and search for "Phoebe" in the search box.

Lauren • March 1, 2023

I have set my default to open pdf's in Adobe and everyone opens NOT in adobe so I only get 4 to 5 pages of your description and how to download. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Adobe, the most current version , I've changed my site settings .I've made adobe my default. I'm a registered customer--which BTW I LOVE your Nico and Lily paper pattern. Best bias dress ever!

Hi! Yay about the Lily and Nico :) The Free PDF patterns - this depends on how your browser is set to preview files and to download them. Your browser is most likely showing you the file in its own "preview" mode - you see the file but have no functions of that file. You'd want to save that file to your device and then open Adobe and then in the Adobe menu - ask it to open the saved file ( the file might be in the downloads or recent files folder). If you are stuck - send us an email to customer service letting us know what device you are using and we will walk you through it.

This was my first clothing item project. I love my new tank top. It was impossible to find this design in a shop so I made it myself.

Best first project

I made two Phoebes. One in black and one in white using their all purpose medium weight linen. This was my first ever sewing project and I am so pleased with the results! I've been wearing them almost daily and they are a perfect beginner project. THank you!

Easy pattern for beginners with a lovely result.

Once I worked out my correct sizing, this cute little linen tank top was so quick and easy to make up. I have several and love them all. I reach for them all the time in hot summer months. Perfect beginner project, that you will wear over and over again.

Not suitable for large chested women...

Sorry gals, I've gotta call 'em as I see 'em. I really appreciate free patterns, and especially the inclusion of large sizes - but one shape, with non-stretchy fabric, just does not work. This pattern is not suitable for large chested women. There are no darts, and no way of adding them without recutting the front. The neck is impossibly high in the front. When it was sized up to the plus size, they sized width of the chest, which makes it impossibly wide from shoulder to shoulder, which creates a big gap right in front. There is not enough shape to add a pleat with a couple of buttons to close the gap without tightening it over the bust. The arm holes are a nice size, the again, the straight cut on a chesty girl makes them pull funny, and you end up with huge gaps in front of the armpit which holds open enough to get a pretty good view of your bra. All my brick-house sisters out there, this one isn't for us. But F/S team, we love that you tried! :)

I've made four versions of this tank and have more planned! I've made it as is, cropped it, pieced it, and added tiers to make one of my favorite dresses. After my first one, I went up a size for the armscye and found that much more comfortable. It's the perfect staple and only takes me about an hour and a half to make.

I used my favourite upholstery material just to try my skills. I will make another one with linen and will be very careful with cutting this time :) love the style

Duygu • May 18, 2024

Lovely material. I like the pattern. I'm bigger up top and therefore it shortened the length in front. I kept this in mind when making the second one and added 3". This made a big difference. IL019 All-purpose Blue Bonnet Fs Signature Finish - 100% Linen - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2)

2nd top with 3" added to the cut. Beautiful material! IL019 All-purpose Optic White Fs Signature Finish - 100% Linen - Medium (5.3 oz/yd2)

Christine • April 7, 2024

Used contrast bias tape (for 2 of 3 tops) and used the same fabric for a pocket. Made 3 tank tops! Made this one for my 11 yr old daughter.

Bhargavi • December 25, 2023

I've made 4 of these tanks from FS linen. They are great for layering! Love the bias binding at the neck and arms.
