The inspiration came from this book, custom couture. Another project from this book.
Going to try the "fit to be tied." Good way to use up fabric scraps! I followed the instructions. And then I stopped following instructions. Because they were so wrong. When I first cut the tube, it was way too long. What I would suggest is measure the distance from the arm hole to the bottom of the tank top and then add 6 inches. NOT 16 inches.
Actually this was the worst instructions I could ever read. It made no sense. No sense. And the only diagrams they had was for the bow. Which helped me for nothing.
So I had to cut off the bottom. Here is what I did.
I serged the bottom and top of the tube.
Then I folded over the top and sewed. I also sewed a gathering stitch.
Then I put my tank top on the chair and put the seam on a side.
I sewed the tube on to the tank top.
Created a casing in the bottom, add elastic.
Next I added a bow. Simply just found a scrap ribbon in my stash. Created a bow. Sew. Cut off excess .
It looks like what was in the book. This could have potential in other projects.
I don't need to use the book whatsoever.
