Braided Tank

Added Sep 6, 2009

by sweetpadee

La Verne, Califo...






Braided tank from themedusa. I did not use the pattern for the top since I was afraid it may have been a little large for me.

I used one of my own tanks as a base for the top and used the instructions for making and attaching the braid. I also made a sash/belt to tie around the waist.

This one was quick and cute! I had a new outfit in the matter of hours and wore it to a party that night…

Material Notes

Brown cotton knit.

    I love this! I was considering something similar to give it a more fitted look and now I’m sold!

    Thank you for your comments! It’s really good to get some feedback, especially since I really haven’t been spending time with my sewing lately. I must say that I am really happy with the result though.

    I think you did an awesome job on creating your own pattern. the details you put into tank top really set it apart. very adorable!!!

      Hi zuckerschnuetchen,

      I took some remnant pieces of the fabric and made sure that they were the same width and sewed them to make a long strip. It was really fast and dirty, no finishing or anything.

    Cute! I have a bit of leftover silk jersey, and I was thinking of making something similar…
