But more like Tea Rose Home’s tank…
So I got a wild hair last week and just started cutting up a white t-shirt because I knew I envisioned a cute shirt under a cardigan for our Christmas pictures. It was definitely trial-and-error since I didn’t use a tutorial but just started cutting 2 1/2” strips from a white shirt and pinning it to an old white tank top I had lying around. Here’s some horrible iPhone pictures, lol.
Here’s my old tank (please ignore my very messy unfinished craft shed =)
I started cutting my shirt into
I eyeballed my starting position and started pinning away.
Here’s where I had a hiccup!
My starting point should have been the top of my shirt so it would go all the way across and not break up the shirt any. See what I mean? So I ended up taking those first two short pieces out and replaced it with a long piece and turned the extra in and sewed around the neckline.
Here’s my finished work. I also want to note that when I put this on the ruffles on the top were puckering up. You could probably avoid this by making longer strips width-wise. Because I was desperate, I just used hem tape and ironed down the 5-6 ruffles to make sure they did not curl up to reveal my tank top underneath.
And I did wear it for our Christmas pictures along with my Vintage Rose Wrap belt and Kenna’s headband =) This photo shoot is the fourth shoot we’ve done with Melody Coarsey Photography and we love her =)
And I snapped this picture this morning to show off my tank top once more =)
Now I want to try to make this pretty thing! I love the color! Couldn’t find the original link but it’s from J. Crew.
Once again, everyone have a great Thanksgiving! We’ll be headed downstate to see my granny and dad and I can’t wait =)
