Gemma is a comfortable and flattering pullover tank with a shirttail hem and options for a high or low neckline. A quick and simple project, sewing this top is a great way to learn garment-sewing basics. Included are nine women’s sizes with two different front bodice pieces to fit either A/B or C/D cup sizes. Gemma will quickly become a favorite for your summer wardrobe and for all-season layering!
