ABOUT

This classic, scoop neck tank was designed with EVERYONE in mind! It can easily be dressed up for the office or paired with your favorite sweats for a cozy night in.


It's worked from the bottom up in 2 separate panels and the optional peplum/dress add-on is worked from the base of the tank down (allowing you to choose the perfect length for YOUR body!)

BEHIND THE NAME

Before becoming a SAHM, my favorite job was at Preston Lakes Apartments in Owasso, Oklahoma. My boss was awesome (Yup, I'm talking about you, Kim Hackler!), the job was fun, and I got to dress up EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. I'm talking high waisted pencil skirts, peplum tops, dresses, heels... ALL OF IT! And since I was coming from a factory floor job, that was obviously a pro. Anyways, after making the peplum version of this top, it immediately took me back to those days at the office! So yeah... this top is technically named after an apartment complex lol Real deep stuff here.
