DIY cutout top from tank

Supplies: plain tank


I like the cut out trend and mixed with the bow top makes this the perfect summer crop top, even a great replacement for a swimming suit.  



DIY:

Cut the tank in half.
Gather the middle of the top half and then sew the gathers in place.


Cut the bottom half to desired length and one of the side seams. 


With right sides together sew the top to the bottom leaving a 2-3 inch gap below the gather for the cut out. Once you've sewn all the way around, sew the side seam up you previously cut. 


With the extra fabric cut a little piece to go around the gathered top. You can also use ribbon. Hand sew it in place.  Try this in the back as well...

tip: for extra coverage add a bandeau. You can make the middle strap with a snap from fabric so you can wrap it around the bandeau…

  8. What if you wanted a cut out like that but keep the tank longer? Would you just get a longer tank?

  9. Super cute... I was sitting here reading your blog and was like that tank is really cute. And then, I realized it's because I'm wearing it! :)

    To keep it longer, I am sure you could use a scrap piece of fabric for the "knot" and not really lose any length from the tank...

  18. Hey There! I am Remi Miller. I feel like this piece is coming from an experienced writer as I am noticing emphasis on clarity, research, and conciseness. I can say this with certainty because I have an innate passion for reading since childhood, and I have been reading blogs for quite some time now. During the last few hours, I have pushed myself to break the mental barrier which was stopping me from writing for a long time. Professionally, I was a senior technical writer at Norton. Now, I focus on informing people with edifying and useful writing pieces. You can go and have a look right here:

  19. Hi! How are you? I hope you are doing well. If you have read the above-written article and you have liked it, then I would like to corroborate the fact that the above write-up is indeed quality work. The grammar is on point and I cannot see any factual flaws in the work. Apart from that, the write-up is a unique blend of simplicity and vocabulary. However, one thing that has impressed me more than the rest is the research. It seems as if the author put more impetus in the factuality of the content rather than expressing views, which is a good thing.
