Without even realizing it I have made/re-made five tank tops in the last month or so. My goodness what is the deal? I don’t know but here I am to share another tank top I made with some unusual fabrics….
A duvet cover! And if you were to tour my home you’d notice that the same fabric has also been made into curtains. I know I’m goofy but I just love the print so much and I have a ton of fabric!
I also made the same tank top from some fabric I found at Goodwill. Remember that shopping trip where I scored really big? Well I also found about 1.5 yards of a nice lightweight cotton print that I made a shirt out of and…oh no, I just realized I also made a curtain out of it for our mudroom. Apparently curtains and tank tops have a lot in common, like they can often be made from the same fabric.
I didn’t take any pictures of how I made them but here is the post. One note about making this shirt. The first time I sewed the sides and left room for the armholes I made them too small. The armholes should really fall a few inches below your armpit so that the tank isn’t too tight. You can always tighten it more by tying the bow tighter.
Another note: The tank pictured on the bottom has a thinner sash than I would have liked. The straps don’t stay on quite as well because it’s so thin and it gets wrinkled really easily and is hard to iron. I actually use my hair straightening iron to smooth it out and it works great!
I know I have two already but I actually would love a few more!
Oh and one more note. The jeans I’m wearing in both pictures are my absolute favorite! I got them from Banana Republic and spent what was for me a ridiculous amount of money on them. But you know what? It was so worth it because they fit like a dream and I wear them about 70% of the time. Invest in good jeans people! And then save money by making tank tops out of duvet covers 🙂
