so, as stated: this is my first sewing project in, like, five years.

it was a white shirt with a pocket. it had very small and very light pit stains (lol!) and my boyfriend was going to throw it away, but i didn't let him b/c i needed something of no worth for my first project. . .

so i left the pocket on and made a little tube top. . .now to the question - how do you make a band or something to go around the top? it is falling off of me - i guess it's the material. would it be better to make a band with a bit of stretch to add to the top or is there another way to handle this?

ANY ideas would be appreciated! thank you!

i'm excited :-D

oh- and any way to jazz it up a bit would be okay, but i'd rather leave it plain and wear a billion necklaces Smiley  thanks again Wink

Nevermind - I took care of it.

I made a long tube out of some gray jersey material and ironed it, then I sewed(?) it to the top's front. i left it hanging in the back, then tied it behind me. i like it. i'll post pics tomorrow, when it's not 2 a.m.   Undecided

you could buy some ribbing (its cheap, and its at the fabric store, usually comes on a bolt already in a tube shape, and in many colors) and attatch it to the top (and the bottom, seeing as how banded shirts are very in, and then it would be sorta blousy).  you could also get some elastic and sew it inside the ribbing for extra security.  hope that helps!
