Description

I was inspired to make this tank top after seeing grainline’s summer chambray top (http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/summer-chambray). Her top looks fashionable and comfortable so I decided to give it a go.
For my pattern, I traced a tank top from my wardrobe and changed it to have an a-line shape. Half way through I realized that it was a bit too small across the top, so I added the button placket. I wouldn’t say that this is my best work as I kind of just jumped right in without much planning, but I like how it turned out anyway and have been wearing it a bunch.
The fabric and the buttons were both purchased at a center for creative reuse!

    Love it! How did you learn to do the placket thing? It has eluded me for some time.
