Let’s Restyle Those Summer Tank Tops!

Restyling seems to be all I do these days, but I don’t mind. I originally made the chevron pattern tank for camp but soon realized tank tops are so great for summer time (duh!) and are so cheap! I found mine in the little boy’s section of Wal Mart for $3 each. 

 Chevron Print: This was originally modeled after something I stumbled upon on tumblr, I used white acrylic paint on a black tank and cut the bottom hem off. Perfect paired with a printed scarf.

 Pocket Tank: I drew out a pocket pattern on paper then traced it on fabric leaving half an inch for hemming then I sewed it onto a heather gray tank. I love this under overalls or with shorts and knotted at the bottom.

Lace Tank: Kind of like a high-low skirt, I folded the tank in half and cut a diagonal line and sewed lace to the bottom. This made an asymmetrical hem that will be great paired with high waisted shorts and a cute necklace!
