Here's a simple DIY tutorial on how to turn a blouse into a cute and summer tank. Click on the image to view a larger photo. All you need are the following items:
- A blouse. I used a silky button up with a crazy chain-and-belt pattern. I got this at the thrift store for 75 cents.
- A tank that you can use as a pattern. I have a striped xhileration tank that I thrifted that has a really nice fit, so I typically use it for a pattern. It also helps to use a tank that is made out of a similar material to the blouse you have selected.
- Sewing Machine
The blouse is a really nice silk material. At the thrift store, I didn't check it out too much, but while taking these photos I realized that it has a really cool label that's written in Japanese (I think, please correct me if I'm wrong!). The buttons are gold and I found them rather interesting.
