Brooklyn, New Yo...
I like to finish all edges with folded strips of fabric. I find this gives a cleaner look than I can achieve topstitching with a twin needle on my home sewing machine and serger. For this tank top, I cut the bands so that one white strip runs down the center of the band. Once the band is folded in half, there’s just a thin peep of white at the top edge of the band.
I actually sewed the strips ⅝ inches in from the edges to get rid of the seam allowance I had added (my serger cut off the excess fabric). When adding fabric bands, stretch the bands slightly on the curves around the neck and arms; this will help the bands lay flat.
Finish the tank by attaching the straps to the back of the tank. The elastic bands should make it easy to adjust the straps so they provide maximum support.
