It's getting hotter, so I decided to make myself a floaty racerback tank, based off of one from athleta. I used some gray lightweight knit that I got from the scrap bin at a fabric store for $2.  I added the little side wings for more movement. I got the pattern from an existing tank top I had, and then added the wings. I'm very proud of the binding, because it's the first time I actually top stitched the seams! It looks more finished now. On to pics!

Here's a close up of the drapey hem.


It's extremely comfortable, like I'm floating; I'm sure it'll be great in the summer for wearing or as a swimsuit coverup. I can't wait to make more out of old t-shirts! If you'd like to make your own, here's a link to the tutorial:
