Summer is over and school is back in. Somehow we survived it all. Now it's time to get back to work!
I did a quick t-shirt refashion, so I can stay a part of this wonderful group. Between vacation and back to school, I really haven't had much time for refashioning.
I picked this slightly too big and stained t-shirt to work with. I didn't get a before pic of it on, but it is just your regular shirt that was headed for the PJ drawer because of the size and stain. It is just a little too cute for that, though, so refashion to the rescue!
You can see the stains on the arms of the t-shirt. It was on the back of both sleeves and some of the side of the shirt, so those pieces had to go.
I took an another tank top (This was a refashion, also. It used to be a mens t-shirt) and used it to draw my pattern, leaving some allowance for the seam.
Now I have my tank top shape.
I serged the side seams together first and tried it on for fit.
I took the scraps from the sides of the shirt and used them to finish the armholes and neckline. I also saved the finished hem from the bottom of the shirt to add on at the end.
Here is a look at the finished arm holes, neckline and hem.
And here is the finished tank top!
Way more fitted, flattering, wearable, and cute!
Another t-shrit was saved from the dreaded PJ drawer.
(There's no room in there anyway!!)
This was a very successful refashion rescue mission, I believe.
I have more details and pics on how I did the armholes, neckline, and hem on my blog:
