Tank top refashion


This is a great way to make something old new again. After seeing all the ruffle tank tops at Old Navy and many refashions on other blogs, I decided to try one for myself. I had scrap eyelet and a tank top I bought a year ago. Together it was a perfect match. It was very easy and only took about 20 minutes. It was a great nap time project.

I cut my eyelet 2 1/2 inches wide and 17 inches long, to allow gathering.




















Gather and pin down the center of the strap. This is where you want to sew.



















I decided to add a fabric flower to add a little extra flare. You can see my tutorial for the fabric flower here.
