I Made a Tank Top!


As I mentioned a couple of months ago, I made my first article of clothing this summer.  It is a tank top that I self drafted.  I took a tank top that I already owned and traced around it, changing the back so that it wasn’t a racer-back.  I also made this one quite a bit shorter, because I didn’t like the length of the original shirt.  I absolutely love this fabric!  It’s a quilting fabric, so it wrinkles easily and is a bit stiffer than I normally prefer, but it’s really pretty and was easy to work with.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI also added a detail to the front.  I wanted it to be a bit larger, but like it anyway.  There are two things I don’t really like about it: the shoulder straps are a bit too thin and it’s a bit tight in the chest.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI really love the way it looks with a belt, since it makes the too-tight chest thing less obvious.  Overall, I’m really pleased with how it turned out!
