I originally chose the pink tank because I thought it would stand out best for this tutorial but I kind of love how it turned out. I actually had a few of these tops in the 90’s by Calvin Klein and wore them under my school uniform oxford button downs. I wish I still had them 😉 but this is a pretty simple DIY to refashion an old tank from.

* Old wife beater or tank top
* Elastic {I used 1-1/2″ wide}
* Scissors, pins, needle, thread

* With the bra you’re going to be wearing with it, try on your tank & decide how short/long you want it. You’ll want to stitch the bottom 1-1/4″ of the tank to the elastic so lay your elastic over it and mark it.

* Lay tank flat and cut {I had to cut twice ;)}

* Pin the end of the elastic to the side seam of your tank & try it on again. Measure elastic around the edge of the tank. Cut the elastic about 1″ to 1-1/2″ SHORTER than measurement so it will fit like elastic is supposed to {but not too tight}

* Using a wide & loose criss-cross stitch, hand-stitch elastic to tank. {If you’ve got a serger/overlock machineoverlock machine, obviously this would be your preferred method} Remember you are working with stretch materials and you’re going to have to stretch it to get it on. This is why you keep stitches loose or they will snap! {you may also choose to use elastic thread}

* Make sure your stitches on the elastic side are very small so they are near invisible.
