"Modern Fairytale" // Too Tight Tank Top Refashion

"Modern Fairytale" :)



It all started off as a tank top that was a little too tight though. 
I liked the sequin detailing on the arm openings & the little pocket on front.
I had some chiffon on hand that was the same color as the sequins.
Perfect match!
I really liked the beige/pink combo. Reminded me of "fairytale princess" colors...hence the name...


1. I cut open both sides of the tank top, even the armhole. 


 2. I cut out two triangles on the fold, with the top part straight, as shown.
To figure out how tall I wanted the triangles, I simply measured my cut in Step 1 + a couple inches (about 3"-5")


3. I folded over twice, and zig zag stitched, to keep the chiffon from fraying & make clean edges. 
(I don't have a serger!)


How the whole thing looks...


4. Next, I attached the first triangle as shown.
(Right sides of the fabric touching)


5. Next, I flipped over the front side of the tank.


6. I flipped it inside out &...


7. ...attached the other side of the triangle. 
(Right sides of the fabric touching! It should look inside out at this point)


8. I attached the triangle as shown. I folded over the chiffon to grab the tank top fabric. 


9. Lastly, I just hemmed the bottom part, by folding over twice & straight stitch!


TA DA!

    1. I've been wanting an overlocker, but sadly not enough funds yet! I just use ALOT of pins and use a zig zag stitch to finish off all the seams. :)

  4. Thanks for the perfect guidance regarding the t shirt cuts. Looking for some soft fabric tank tops for me and my sister. Have to join dance classes for our annual function next month. And want some really good clothes for comfort movements. Saw many of them online and will finally order them today.
