Shoptalk - Eileen Fisher tank look alike

While cruising around looking for interesting garment details, I found this very simple Eileen Fisher tank top. It's made from a organic cotton /lycra blend and sells for ~$70.00. It seems like it would be very easy to duplicate this look using Loes Hinse Design - Tank Group Pattern. Here's the line drawing:

Doesn't View D look very similar to the Eileen Fisher tank? This tank only takes between 7/8 - 1 5/8 yards to make the tank top depending on fabric width. If the fabric was $10 per yard, you could easily get 4 - 6 tops for the same cost as Fisher tank. Plus the pattern has other views of tanks and dresses. View B looks a lot like some of the tank dresses by Eileen Fisher that are made out of a rayon/linen blend. Interested? Here's the link to the Tank Dress Group pattern at The Pattern Loft: click here

If the pattern is sold out and your still interested, let me know. I can set-up a pre-order auction and order the pattern for you.
