– Thrifted tank top, loose fitting. Mine was about $5.
– Jersey knit fabric of your choice. I started with 2 yards & had a ton leftover.
– Coordinating thread. I used maroon thread + a shiny rayon mustard yellow thread.
– Sewing machine
– Scissors, pins, tailor’s chalk
*I used a special kind of jersey knit fabric, called ITY knit (interlocking twist yarn). It stretches like a normal jersey t-shirt but has an amazing, high quality & smooth feel to it. I bought mine from Fabric.com, but you can find ITY knits all over the web & at fabric supply stores. I’m personally in love with this fabric – and Fabric.com – and just recently placed another order. I definitely recommend them!
You can even use the fabric from an old oversized shirt – I’m sure you can find some crazy printed jersey t-shirts at the thrift store – and don’t forget to look in the mens’ and maternity section. As long as it’s big enough to give you enough fabric, then go for it.
