The Verano Tank is a modern tank top & dress with four views, all with the option of either a solid or button front, for a total of eight different variations.
All views are sleeveless, have bust darts, & a flattering scoop front. View A has a shirt tail hem, chest pocket, & ends at the upper hip. View B has sewn-down side seam pockets, & a shirt tail hem that lands just below the knee. View C features a gathered skirt with patch pockets that hits below the knee, & is attached to the tank slightly above the natural waist. View D is also cut just above the natural waist, with a two-tier midi length full gathered skirt, which has pockets sewn into the side & waist seams, so they stay in place. Pockets can be added or subtracted to any view as desired.
