Although summer has officially ended, temperatures here in Southern California have ceased to drop. Thus, it is still necessary to sport my tanks n’ shorts.
The fabric is a rayon challis that was actually about to be thrown out at work, as it was barely 1/4 yard. Accompanying the almost discarded fabric was a long strip of 1″ wide bias binding, which was perfect to make the straps and neck/armhole binding.
Per usual, I made this by using the body of a garment I knew fit me and cut around that on my fabric. (the fabric of the garment was similar to the one I was cutting). The double straps just came about as I was playing with the placement of the bias binding – functional and fashionable!
If you couldn’t tell from the first photo, here’s a closer shot of the double straps.
I made this tank back in July and it’s definitely one of my favorite crop tops to wear with high waist pants. So much so, that I made an identical one in a polyester “spray print” (that’s what I like to call it because it’s crazy and wild!).
I’m bummed summer is coming to an end but that only means there is fall/winter sewing on my horizion!
Stay tuned! And as always – PEACE! 🙂
