Top three reasons why I heart my hubby's abandoned under shirts:
1. Wash after wash they still have his yummy smell to them
2. They are always super soft and comfortable
3. They make very easy and cute little refashions like this one in less than 20 minutes
Who says cut-off tank tops are only for sweaty guys at the gym? This is totally feminine and cute enough to wear out and about.
1. Freshly washed t-shirt (we only want those good smells to linger!) that fits loosely on you
2. Sewing machine, thread needles and scissors
With a piece of chalk or fabric pen, trace around your favorite fitting tank top on top of your flat tee about 1 inch away from the tank top for seam allowance and ease. Cut out only the sides of the new "tee tank." No need to cut the shoulders, because they're going right back together :)
Fold the Tee Tank inside out, line up the arm holes and pin in place. Sew the sides together using 1/4 in seam.
Cut out two strips 2 inches by 4 inches of shirt from your left over scraps.
Fold the tee tank right side out. Determine where you want your 'pinch' to be in the sleeves and tie the spot in place with a piece of string.
Step 5. Allow the edges to naturally curl in before you wrap each strip around the string marker on your tied sleeve.
Wrap the strip around the string that is pinching the sleeve in place. Make sure the ends are curled under. If they aren't staying curled, you might want to hem them under before moving on. Carefully sew the ends of the strip together so that they are snug against the sleeve and will hold it pinched together as close as you like (try not to sew over the string you tied on, so you can pull it off later).
Untie your string to take it off. Move the wrap so the seam is positioned in the back and cut off the excess strip. And you're done!
