good for you, I wish more people would do the same. I have a friend who spent 60 dollars on a t shirt recently and I wanted to smack his face off.

In no particular order:

92$ CAN for a tank?!!  Who has that kind of money?

I think your version looks better- it fits better than the commercial version.  Plus, the top itself is gorgeous. 

I love your backyard Smiley

This rocks!

As for the bunching up in the back....  maybe try some iron on interfacing to stabilize the knit, so it isn't as easy to 'creep' upwards?  Though this would kinda negate the point of using a knit for stretch and comfort.... Hmm.  Or maybe a piece of flexible coil boning down the denim trim in the back (it isn't as uncomfortable as it sounds, I swear!) to stop fabric shifting.  Or just leave it.  I think you look great in it!

Great job! I love when you can do something yourself for a fraction of the cost and modify it to your style/color preferences!

Thanks again for all the comments! I enjoy trying to replicate clothing that I like, but is out of my price range. That way I can add my own bit of "flare" to whatever I re-create.

Thank you hildegard! I thought about using a few pieces of boning in the back, but was worried they might get bent when I pull the top on over my head. I am not familiar with flexible coil boning. Is this very different from regular boning?
