We are approaching the middle of summer so I decided to make a simple tank top using one of my “remnant” fabric collection that requires less cutting, less sewing, and still looks fabulous.
This is the sketch of my tank top idea. Sew two square pieces together and put a strap through. Simple as that! We will see how it goes.
I found a stretchy “Pumpkin” fabric that is about 1.5 yards long in my sewing drawer. First, cut the part that becomes strap (1 inch wide and 30 inches long).
By the way, the cost of the fabric was $1.19 (about 1.5 yards).
Cut the remaining fabric in half. (Sorry about the blurred image >_< ).
Fold the top 2 inches to the wrong side and stitch. Do the same on the other piece.
Lay front on back,right sides facing. Leave 7 inches from the top for the arm hole and stitch side seams.
Now sew a strap as described in the image below.
Run a strap through the tubes (I used a hair pin to guide it through) and sew the strap ends together to make a loop. Fold a hem on the bottom to wrong side at the desired length (16 inches was a perfect length for my height of 5’3” ) and stitch. Basically, it looks like a sport sac with an opened bottom, right?
Do I look like I am wearing a sac? Perhaps, or perhaps not!
