    ok, I went to Burda style free patterns and think I found it. Although it is 20 pages of handwritten that looks really confusing for turning a tshirt into a tank top!! I guess I am way more remedial than i thought. The other odd thing is that I only get the first line of your message. Sigh, I’m feeling very simple!

      that’s the pattern – the 20 pager. i emailed you too, but you should be ready to go! like all patterns printed from home, you have to put it together first…

    Thank’s for replying, I hate to be a pain, however I have downloaded this 3 times and it only consists of 5 pages of instructions on the braid. Suggestions? Is it a Canada thing? I grew up in SF Bay Area and have a sister in Oakland. I miss it

      no worries!! but that IS odd. not sure what it could be – did you try “print pattern at home” in your history section? i get those 5 pages of braid instructions when i click on “get all instructions” (both are listed in my history). maybe email burdastyle or even contact themedusa directly…this website definitely has some hiccups at times. good luck with it, it’s really a handy little pattern. sorry i’m not of more help!

      her instructions don’t include any info about reusing an old tshirt, but i just cut the sides and arms, then used the pattern like normal.

      what a small world! come visit soon, much has changed in oakland in the past 10+ years. poppy fabrics closed down a while ago, but they opened a little fabric store on piedmont that just makes me drool.
