Here it is! The tutorial I didn’t plan on! LOL
So here we go!
If you are doing a young child’s size you will probably need less than a 1/2 yard of eyelet (or whatever) and less than a 1/2 yard of lining. C1 is a 5 in waist and chest but an 8 in length if that helps you any.
You will need a tank that fits your child to use as a template. Brown paper or wrapping paper (or whatever) to cut as a pattern.
And your basic sewing stuff. 😉
Step 1- place your child’s tank on the paper and trace around it leaving room for seam allowance.
Step 2- Cut out your pattern
Step 3- Pin your newly made pattern to your lining material on the fold.
Step 4- Cut 2
Step 5- Pin your pattern to your eyelet on the fold.
Remove cat from eyelet
Step 6- Cut 2
Step 7- Pin right sides together one eyelet and one lining
Step 8- Start at one end and sew continuously around to the other end, leaving the bottom open
Step 9- Do the other eyelet and lining.
Step 10- Turn right side out and press and trim seams (if needed)
Step 11- Pin front to back with right sides together
Step 12- Sew top of straps together
Step 13 – Sew sides together
Step 14- Pin and hem the bottom
Step 15- Turn right side out and press seams
Congratulations! You just made the eyelet tank! So simple and cool for summer! And it goes with ANYTHING!
I’ll be sure to take pics of c1 in her tank and May Flowers skirt tomorrow morning! 🙂
