The front had this little tiny graphic near the top.
I thought I could wear it to bed, but that's a bit of a waste too. Naturally, I decided to make a tank out of it. Who couldn't use another cute tank top?
When working on my tank I used the pattern I made for this shirt. After I cut up my main pattern pieces, I used the hem of the t-shirt to finish off the neck.
This is my least favorite part about sewing tanks. The tank top took about 10 minutes to cut, pin and sew. But, I had the neck and arms to finish. It's hard because it's so darn hard to sew a straight line on the very edge of the edge. I have found it helps to sew it on like bias tape. unfold it, pin it to the inside of the shirt open and sew. Then when you fold under, you can't see that stitch. Now when you fold the outside over and sew on the edge, you will have one stitch on both sides. (Yep, that's my label sneaking in the picture.)
This time I did the neck line a little different. I folded the edge over, but didn't fold it under. I left it with the raw edge out and sew just inside of the edge. I like the look for this tank. Then for the arms, I just sewed a strip on the inside of the shirt to reinforce it a bit.
So, there is my new refashioned t-shirt into a tank.
And the cute little graphic on the back.
I made one minor mistake on this. I didn't wash the t-shirt before I sewed it. I have to remember to not dry it and for when I do forget, hope that it doesn't shrink cause it's not super stretchy. Ok, so it's not so minor.
What have you refashioned lately?
