WOW loving the tank tops!! Did you use a pattern? or did you make the pattern? Would you mind sharing? I live in these kinds of shirts (wearing a black store bought one) and I would love to be able to make my own. Good job!

Wow!  Great job!

The binding around the neck and arm holes is really great and adds so much to each top!  These are all knits, right? Did you make your own binding?  Any chance you would like to do a tutorial on binding knits?  Is that even the right terminology?

Fabulous tops - that's pretty much the top half of a whole new summer wardrobe you've got there .... *jealous*

its all knit. Not sure if i can describe it but its just a long strip of knit about 2" wide, the stretch its going lengthwise, fold it over in half widthwise and place it on the right side of the shirt fabric with all the raw edges together and serge it (or if you dont have a serger, use a zig zag stitch, not a straight stitch), while your serging it pull the knit strip as your going.

Does that make sense? Thats the best i can do, lol. Hope that helps.

Hey there,

Firstly, I just wanted to say that I think you did an amazing job on these. ^^ The 4th shirt is my favourite and I was just wondering if you used a pattern or just made it yourself? Would you mind sharing?
