Tonight I wanted to make a cute new tank to wear since the weathers been sl nice. I have a ton of scrap fabric with beautiful prints from ring slings and other projects I’ve made.
I took 2 squares of 20″x20″ of this beautiful scrap fabric.
I grabbed a stretchy navy tank out of my drawer o’tanks (I literally have 50+ tank tops).
I created a bit of gathering to the front center of the tank by using the widest stitch possible then pulling the ends of the thread to gather.
Next, I took my 2 squares with the right sides facing (gathering at the top) and sewed down both sides.
I hemmed the bottom all the way around by folding over twice and using a straight stitch.
Next, I cut the tank and sewed it to the bottom half of my new top.
I created this tank long so that I could wear it as a tunic with leggings or just as a cute top. I think the print will also go well with jeans (my every day attire).
I’ll be wearing this tomorrow (like I always do with new clothes I make!). Follow me on Twitter or Pinterest @RefashionMama or on facebook
