Three Button Top Tutorial

Sunday, June 17, 2012

Here's a tutorial for a cute little top to wear as the weather heats up this summer.  
I've already made two for Anja, and I'm pretty sure I'll make a few more variations.

*I used a store bought t-shirt as my fabric.  
It's great to be able to use the existing hemline for a professional looking finish.*

*I didn't include my sizes, since it's based on the tank top I used as a guide 
and measuring my daughter, 
but leave a comment, and ask...I'd be happy to let you know my measurements.*

 *found an outgrown, stained shirt to up-cycle for the front part*

All done!

  5. I'm impressed! Looks so cute.:) I love upcycling t-shirts!!!

  6. That is so sweet! I think I might have to make myself one, perhaps with ruffles/ruched fabric down the sides of the white panel. I am very excited to get sewing!


  7. Very cute, thanks! How did you finish the side seams? I'm new to sewing clothes, and I would like to try this out. Did you trim and serge/zigzag?

    Rachael :)

    1. I just ran the side seams through my serger (3/8 seam allowance). If you don't have one, a regular machine would work fine, but I'd recommend using a ball point needle and don't stretch the fabric as you sew (to avoid waviness).
