Castro Valley, U...
This light-weight vest, or cover-up was fashioned from a flared bottom tank top that was once attached to a blouse. The shoulder seams had to be cut in order to remove it, and I was afraid that creating new shoulder seams would leave the arm holes too small. So in order to work around that, I created a couple of tabs using a similar weight knit fabric from an old dress.
This is one of those things you just have to figure out as you go along…there’s not tutorial, or even hard and fast rules for creating it. Details of how I went about this remake can be found at http://www.SewMimi.com
