As you read through your instructions, you'll notice that if you choose to add on a wider 'waterfall' drape, the lower the drape will hang.  For the pink/black knit jacket, I've chosen the shorter waterfall extension.
 
This jacket looks great over either a matching or contrasting tank top.  My basic black tank top sets off the black in the fabric.  However I'd purchased plenty of fabric to sew a coordinating tank top.
 
This particular fabric has a real funky selvage that looks like mini-fringe.  It was just perfect for leaving as is for the lower hem edge.  In order to achieve this I needed to lay the straight of grain PERPENDICULAR to the selvage, not the usual parallel to the selvage layout.
 
Then I cut a design line from the right armhole through to the lower left side seam.  Once the pattern was cut apart on this diagonal design line, seam allowance was added.  I wanted the fringy selvage to act as a design element in the final presentation.  
 
The fabric wrong side was dominant in black, so I reversed the fabric to cut & sew the bias trim that I applied at the armhole and neckline.
 
All up, it's a great design combination - the waterfall jacket and the tank top - enjoy!
