I saw this idea on pintrest. The directions are HERE. From a blog called Designs by Studio C
This inspired me to make a new tank top from a men's t-shirt on this yucky April (Winter Go Away Already!!!) Day.Things you will need:
Good Fitting tank top- to use as pattern.
Sewing Machine and Thread
Needle and thread
(For a no sew option... just use a tank top that fits you and you can skip the first few steps, just go on to where you mark the design out on the tank!)
First I found a tank that fits how I want this new tank to fit. I turned the t-shirt inside out. Next, lined up the tank to the men's shirt I had.
Next, I cut the neck. This is where the sewing comes in... Two quick seams up the sides to get the top to be fitted.
OK... Now you will have a basic tank, but this could be done on any style tank. Using a ruler, or your eye, mark lines to make the cuts.
Cut slits along the lines, I made mine just under an inch wide and about a quarter of an inch apart.
Take your crochet hook and insert under 2 of the first slits. Pull the 2nd slit under the 1st.
Now you have a loop on your hook. Insert your hook under the next slit and pull it through the loop on your hook. Continue this until you get to the last slit. Stitch the last loop down to keep it from unraveling.
