so this is such an easy DIY project to do or just try out :D
- I just cut the sleeves and the neckline off and made the elastic [underarm measurement] casing for the tube top
- then I shaped the side seams to fit loosely around my body [didn’t want it too figure hugging] and sewed on bands to the side seams for the ‘bow’
- and a small circular piece in the middle for the bow loops
- if you make the straps long enough, the top is very versatile like shown in the pictures
