Boy number three turned four yesterday. To celebrate, I made him a striped tank.
The tank is self-drafted and upcycled from an XL men’s tank top.
The stripes on this tank are so rad. I love finding t-shirts on clearance to use as fabric, because sometimes you can find some fabulous prints that you can’t find elsewhere.
Tanks are quick and easy; I made this one in less than 20 minutes – including a serger re-thread!
He loves this tank so much, he insisted on sleeping in it as well. Point one for mama-made!
I used ribbing for the neckline and coverstitched the armholes. You can get this same effect with a double needle.
I love four. When they’re really out of toddler-hood, but not quite a kid. You can reason with them, but they still curl in your lap and need you to kiss their owies. So perfect. :)
Happy sewing, friends!
