Make Something Monday
I was asked by a friend to post a tutorial for my DIY man's shirt to tank top. The pictures that I have are old, but I'll do my best to write a good description. Feel free to ask any questions!
I took one of my husband's old T-shirts, laid it out flat and used one of my tank tops (that fit well) as a template. I cut around it, and because T-shirts are made of jersey knit, I didn't have to worry about finishing the edges around the color, sleeves, and bottom.
I used the extra fabric that I cut off around the bottom to make the ruffle on top. Super, super easy! Set your machine to the largest zig-zag stitch, pull out your bobbin thread, and stitch over the bobbin thread.
I pinned the ruffle where I wanted it, and sewed away!
All in all, I think this took me about 15 minutes. I think I need to go rummaging through my husband's clothes again, now. This has made me want to do another one!
