Stats
Started Life As:
Size S Men's T-shirt (from Jeans West I think...?)
Became:
A Boob-tube, sort-of.
Then Added:
Size S Women's tank top
And Now It's:


A mock-layered top. Very teenage, I think. X3

As you can see, it was originally made into a boob tube thing, but I always wore it under the same tank top. One day, I just thought "stuff it" and combined the two. I cut away the straps and some of the bottom and just sewed it to the tube.

I cut the top part intending to fold it over and sew it down (I tucked in the hanging bits for the photo). I think I'll just sew it together the way it is in the photo instead.

Tutorial / Pattern Used:
(Originally) "Rollover" from Generation T: 108 Ways to Transform a T-Shirt by Megan Nicolay.

What I Learned:
 - Always keep room for modification.

I love the way you present your posts. And yes, I like the way you dealt with this top twice!

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Oh I love this! I am making some of these with the mass amount of tees I have been hanging onto. A great way to update and recycling the tees and tanks. Grin
