Eyelet Tank Tutorial

Here it is! The tutorial I didn't plan on! LOL

Image

So here we go!

Supplies!

Image

If you are doing a young child's size you will probably need less than a 1/2 yard of eyelet (or whatever) and less than a 1/2 yard of lining. C1 is a 5 in waist and chest but an 8 in length if that helps you any.

You will need a tank that fits your child to use as a template. Brown paper or wrapping paper (or whatever) to cut as a pattern.

And your basic sewing stuff. ;)

Step 1- place your child's tank on the paper and trace around it leaving room for seam allowance.

Image

Step 2- Cut out your pattern

Image

Step 3- Pin your newly made pattern to your lining material on the fold.

Image

Step 4- Cut 2

Image

Step 5- Pin your pattern to your eyelet on the fold.

Image

Remove cat from eyelet

Image

Step 6- Cut 2

Image

Step 7- Pin right sides together one eyelet and one lining

Image

Step 8- Start at one end and sew continuously around to the other end, leaving the bottom open

Image

Step 9- Do the other eyelet and lining.

Step 10- Turn right side out and press and trim seams (if needed)

Image

Step 11- Pin front to back with right sides together

Image

Step 12- Sew top of straps together

Step 13 - Sew sides together

Image

Step 14- Pin and hem the bottom

Image

Step 15- Turn right side out and press seams

Image

Congratulations! You just made the eyelet tank! So simple and cool for summer! And it goes with ANYTHING!

I'll be sure to take pics of c1 in her tank and May Flowers skirt tomorrow morning! :)

In other news... LOL I haven't been able to sew a stitch on the Retro Butterick '56. I've been WAY too busy today. BUT I did hit another fabric sale at Hancock's!! I got some awesome deals!!!

Butch and Sundance are warming up to us! Here is Butch headbutting a carrot....

  7. The tutorial looks so easy and I love the fact that you don't have to worry about the arms and collar area since you did the lining. What i want to know is how does it work since eyelet isn't stretchy?

  8. Thanks! :)
    You just have to make sure you cut it big enough to fit over the head. ;) I admit that I was a little worried about that AFTER the fact. LOL But when I had c1 try it on, it fit perfectly. If you're worried about that you can always cut a notch in the back for a button and piece of elastic. That should give it enough give to go over the head.
