I got this tank at Goodwill for $2? Loved the print and fabric.
Decided where you want to position your strips and tack it down with some pins.
- Fold the bottom of your tank in 1/4 inch then another 1/2 inch. Pin and as close as possible to the top of the hem.
- Sew down the sides where you pinned. Cut off excess leaving ~1 inch before hitting the newly sewed seam. Fold each of those excess flaps down in half towards each other and sew as close as possible to the fold line. This is to prevent frayed edges
- Fold neckline 1/4 inch then another 1/2 inch. The ends of the strips will be tucked into the hem after folding. Sew down.
I want to emphasize the importance of pinning and trying on over and over until you get that perfect fit. Sure it looks big but all fabrics are different- some stretch, some don't! I think I've butchered 3 shirts because of my laziness to pin and try on.
Feel free to ask question and I'll do my best to explain and answer.
