DIY Pretty Lace Sleeve Tank Top

Years ago I used to make little lingerie/pajama sets of tanks and underwear with ruffles – you can see some of them here, along with a DIY for the ruffle boy shorts & bikinis… but I always used ribbed wife-beater style tank tops rather than spaghetti strap tanks. I’ve had this pretty vintage lace trim I found at a thrift shop lying around for ages. I pulled the $3 tag off just the other day as I was prepping for this DIY. I thought it would really be pretty with this blush tank and I love the turnout. This is a very simple DIY.

What You’ll Need…

* Cotton spaghetti strap tank top
* Lace trim about 6inches wide
* Needle/Thread/Pins/Scissors


* Beginning about an inch or two from the end of your lace trim, pin the front of the lace down and along the strap of your tank. It’s better not to cut anything prior.

* Hand stitch or machine sew your lace to your strap.

* Cut the excess lace trim.

* Overlap one edge of lace over the other then hand stitch your ends together creating a circle {not flat as shown above}

* The lace sleeves will stick straight out when lying flat. You may choose to pinch the underarms together and add a few stitches or create a dart of sorts, but when you wear the top, your arms will do this naturally.


Have Fun!
