easy. breezy. tank.

Gotta love a tank that took me about 1/2 hour to finish…yah! and pretty cute to boot.

Click below for more!

Welcome to make your own easy. breezy. tank! It really is easy and a breeze. ;) You’ll need:

1/4 inch elastic
fabric for the top (it depends on your child how much you’ll need. I needed half a yard roughly for my 20 month old)
fabric for the armbands (just a small bit)
sewing paraphenelia: thread, machine, scissors, rotary cutter and ruler are nice to have…etc

I would advise using the instructions on Indietutes.

that’s where I figured out how to make my pattern…she’s WAY better at explaining it than I would be..I’m just using the shape to make a different top! Anyways…once you have your pattern, which should look like the one in the pic, cut two pieces on the fold….except the top is a little different…see the next pic.

cut the neckline straight across, not sloped like the pattern.

Place your pieces right sides together (RST) and sew the two sides. 1/4 inch seam or so…whatever your preference. Finish your raw edges with serger, zig zag stitch, or pinking shears.

Next, on the neck, iron the top edge down 1/4 inch. This is the wrong side of the fabric that you’re looking at.

Then, iron down another 1/4 inch and…

pin! and then sew along the bottom edge, creating the casing for your elastic.

trim the sides of your casing so they don’t look wonky…they’ll be a little off because of the slope of the arm hole.

Next: figure out your elastic length. I was very scientific and held it up to Sadie to figure out how long I’d like it. Just kinda stretch it til it looks like it would fit. Cut two pieces.

Using a safety pin, thread the elastic through the casing…being careful to not pull the end of the elastic through…only to the edge!

Then, sew the elastic and casing near the edge.

Pull the other end through the casing and tack that side down as well. Repeat for the other side.

Next: measure around your child’s shoulder where the armband will lay, to find out how long it needs to be. Add 1/2 inch to that measurement for seam allowances, and cut out two pieces, two inches wide by however long they need to be. On the bias is best.

here are the two pieces…mine were 2″x11.5″.

Iron in half lengthwise.

Then iron the two sides to meet in the middle crease. Please ignore my boo boo…I’m clumsy.

tada! LIke so..

Iron in half again.

Next, unfold your piece of bias tape, and place the ends, RST.

(sorry about my mangy hands…I’m clumsy and scratch myself a lot.)

Then sew along the end like so. Finger press the seams open.

Then fold it back up until you have two little armbands! cute!

Lining up the seams, pin it along the arm hole, enclosing the raw edge.

Sew the bias tape around your shirt piece, making sure to catch the other side in your seam. Repeat for the other arm…hem it up (or use a pillowcase with a hem like I did…lazy!) and you’re done!
