DIY Plain tank sewn zipper racer back.

Supplies: Zipper, Simple Tank




Spaghetti tank refashion, this time with a zipper.  

Tutorial below...







Follow the same instruction for the grommet tank (here), but using a zipper. Or watch the video tutorial here.

The length of the zipper is your choice. You can stitch it around the front or stop at the top of the back neckline like I did.

It's the little details like this that change a plain top. All I had was a black zipper, but try some fun colors…neon pinks, coral, mint…

  15. I tried making this today, but starting the zipper at the bottom of the neckline on the back created a lot of awkward extra folds of fabric when I zipped it up. What size tank did you use?
