DIY T-Shirt to Tank Top!
Today's Project is a cute ruffly tank top shirt made out of an old t-shirt.
What You'll Need
An old tshirt
A sewing needle and thread (or a sewing machine)
(Not gonna lie) a little patience too.
Lay the shirt out flat, inside out
Extend the chalk marks down to the bottom of the shirt. Cut off the excess.
Sew the sides closed and hem the top.
Turn the shirt right side out. For the bib part, I'm using felt. I'm laying it out and cutting it out accordingly.
I want to make lines with ribbon so i'm marking at each inch.
Then sewing the ribbon on.
Add lace around the border.
Lay the bib on the shirt to make sure it looks like you want it.
I also added a collar. and sewed the whole thing on.
I'm trying on the bodice on the mannequin.
Now mark where the straps should go. Sew simple straps out of ribbon and lace and then sew them on your markings.
And done, mission success! Sorry I blocked out my face but I looked all tired and gross.
