I bought this shirt at a thrift store for 99 cents. I transformed it into the perfect summer tank. I love that the open back comes to a point at hem and it hangs just a bit lower then the side seam. I inserted an elastic under the bust to give a complimenting A-line. There is also some cotton lace trim added to give it the extra girly touch.
Any over sized button-down men’s shirt,
1/2 in. elastic,
lace or trim of choice
