Cheryl the ribbing fabric that I used was 44" inches wide and was in a tube. (no selvage edges). I got it from JoAnn's. The store here near me usually has a nice variety of this type of knit binding. It is cotton, but has a slight bit of lycra threads I think, since the recovery is excellent. I'm planning on making a few more for this summer, but will add length to the hem and side vents. It is still my favorite tank pattern!

The cardigan and tank are wonderful! I love the way you used the ribbing fabric for the actual tank! I will try to look for that myself.

Hi mrs quickly, I did lower the front neckline about an inch, but the cardigan is cut exactly as the pattern indicates. I have worn this set so much that the color is starting to fade. :( I will definately make it again. The tank is a really great fit all on it's own, but it's too cold here to wear it without the cardigan.

Great looking twin set. Did you lower the neckline of the tank or the cardi? Thanks!

This is a very nice set. I was looking at the Coldwater Creek website for ideas and saw a red cardigan and wished I had a similar pattern. This look like it. Thanks for the review.

What a professional job you did with this set. It sure would be nice to have the fba drafted into the pattern.

I imagine that color is beautiful on you, Debe. And thanks for mentioning the knit you used. I fondled some at the store the other day, thinking it was much nicer than the other non-tube rib knits, but didn't know whether it could be used for the body of garments. Thanks for confirming what I had hoped!

I love it. This looks like it has just a bit more shaping to it than 2759. Thanks for pointing out the error and for bringing this to our attention.

How wonderful to find a basic pattern that needs no alterations. Great job, looks very rtw (is that a compliment?). Thanks for the review.
