You will need fabric and two zippers, either 6 or 8 inches. Using a 1:2 ratio for the length of the fabric cut two 4 x 12 (or 4 x 16) pieces out to fit the zippers. I cut the corners off for a more rounded look and then zig-zag stitched the edges to prevent fraying.  I cut the material in half with the intention of sewing the material on top of the zipper.  I sewed a long stitch down the inside of the material and then pulled on the threads to gather the material.  I made sure the length of the gathered material was the same as that of the zipper. I pinned the material to the zipper with the ruffles face down on top of the zipper.  I lined  the rough edge of the material up to the outside edge of the zipper and stitched all the way down. I zig-zag stitched the material to reinforce it and then ironed the ruffles to lay flat.  I then placed the finished product onto my tank and pinned it down.  I hand stitched the zippers to the tank for easy removal and voila!

What an unusual idea! It makes me want to put antennae on the zipper pulls for butterflies.

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