Don't know what to do with that oversize T-shirt sitting in the back of your closet? Before you decide to rip it into rags to polish the furniture, give it one more look. That shirt can be transformed into a stylish new tank top.
Iron the T-shirt and tank top.
Place tank top over the T-shirt and align the hems. Pin the tank top into place.
Trace the tank top pattern onto the T-shirt using the fabric pen.
Measuring a 1/2-inch seam allowance, cut around the traced pattern.
Pin the fabric with the right sides together and sew the shoulder seams using a zigzag stitch. Press the seams with the iron.
Fold the arm hole seams in about 1/2 inch and iron the crease. Sew the hem using a straight stitch.
Using a zigzag stitch, sew the side seams, leaving a 1/2-inch seam allowance. Press the seams with the iron.
