From Sophie Hines:

The Axis Tank is the ultimate comfortable bra. You can wear it alone, layered with another bra, or to sleep in. Worn with a shaped, supportive bra, the Axis Tank distributes tension around your torso, relieving tight spots and uncomfortable restriction. It’s just the thing to layer with sheer tops, and is a super comfortable option to wear under sweaters and layers. Two neckline options work with a range of clothing styles, and both options are available with or without beautiful geometric design lines, creating panels that can be used for color blocking or trim insertion. 

GARMENT SPECIFICS The Axis Tank is an unlined cropped tank top bralette, designed to be worn as a comfort or layering garment. It is entirely elastic free. Four different views feature the tank with scooped and high necklines, with and without different design panels. The views without panels feature only one seam in the garment body, up the center back. This is makes the Axis Tank a quick sew, as well as excellent for those for whom pressure points are a concern. All openings are finished with a super easy binding method using your garment fabric. 

Garment can be entirely constructed with a sewing machine, serger/overlocking machine optional. Techniques required include zig zag stitches, pinning + sewing curved seams, and understitching seam allowances.
