Great job!  I got the pattern but don't think I will attempt it for awhile.  It's good to see that it is do-able, but I don't have the time or patience right now.  I'm sure it will be very frustrating, but you did an excellent job, wear it proud!

73  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / First recon. T shirt to tank on: March 17, 2005 08:13:38 AM
I know the t-shirt to tank isn't a new thing around here, but this is my first reconstruction and my first project without using a pattern and I'm proud of it, so thought I would share it with all of you since this board was my inspiration
Here is the finished tank

Here is the shirt I started with, it's one of hubby's old shirts he didn't want anymore. I love the design (I'm a car chick too heh), but it was definately too big for me


For the straps, I cut off the bottom hem of the t-shirt at the seam and opened it. Then I folded each end lengthwise to the center, stitched those, then folded it again lengthwise and stitched that.
