this is such a cute tank, and it looks pretty easy. I am thinking that we have to cut the top half separate and then do pinch pleats across it. Then join it to a gathered bottom. Am I missing anything? I am going to try to attach the picture. Thanks for looking.

Oh, are there any settings we can choose so we wouldn't have to do as much in pe?

I would choose tank top/button front and then play round with the front and back neck width and depth. Then I'd take it to PE and add the pleats and shape the hem. 

 I don't think that you should do the top separate from the bottom, but instead allow the pleats to give the fullness.  

 It looks like the pleats are angled in the front and shorter on the sides.

 An alternative would be to pleat first and then cut.

 Please post pictures when you're done.

thanks Jill,
as I look closer I see what you mean by leaving the front one piece, I was being thrown by the seam across the bottom of the bust I wonder if that is elastic?
I have customers coming all day today so will be taking care of their projects first, but when I get it done, I will definitely come back here and post a pic.

I think I would choose to pleat first not that I am an advanced seamstress as you two are. I am anxious to see your results.

so If I pleat first, I really don't have to do anything but set up the regular pattern right, and then lay it on the pleated fabric as such? Hmm. I am glad I came back and read this because I have set up what I think will make the top and then was about to go in and try to set up pleats...much time and effort saved, thanks!

This is similar to what I did on a top posted in my album. I used fewer pleats that were stitched almost to the waist. I didn't pleat first and cut, but I like that idea. I took my .las into the editor and added the pleats.

VERY similar indeed! Did you sew your pleats from the inside on that top? It seems so since the folded portion seem loose. How much work did you have to do in PE?

The hardest part was determining the size, placement & number of pleats to give the fit of the bodice and fullness of the skirt that I wanted. I did several muslins. My edge stitching foot stitches just over 1/4" at the widest setting, so that is what I used. The full width of the pleat was .625" stitched with wrong sides together then pressed to the side on the right side. My las file just shows the stitching lines, but the pattern was split through the hem using the slash/spread button in PE.

The top you posted looks like it has more pleats that are narrower. The problem I see with pleating first and then cutting is laying the skirt part straight so that you get the fullness. You could stitch the pleats to where you want them to end and baste the rest of the pleat to the bottom edge then remove the basting. Love to see this when finished!
