Neon Feathers

Neon Feathers Our first DIY tank top idea is a simple makeover. You take an old tank top that has seen better days, draw feathers by the neckline using textile marker, and then color them in with neon fabric paint. Easy, right? If you don't like the look of neon, using more subdued colors will also work.

Racerback Tank

Racerback Tank This project is not a makeover or a refashion. This is a sewing tutorial on how to make racerback style tank tops using knit fabric. I love this! I think I shall be sewing tank tops in all colors of the rainbow this week. And in prints, too, of course. For your pattern, you can use a shirt as reference.

Lacy Shoulders

Lacy Shoulders Ooohhh, how gorgeous. This is another tank top refashion idea. To give a tank top the lacy treatment, you will simply sew the lacy applique over the shoulder and back neckline of your tank top. You can hand stitch but using a sewing machine is advisable. The last step requires cutting the shoulder sections of your tank top but this is optional.

Pretty Pleats

Pretty Pleats The color is divine and the texture added by the pleats is wonderfully interesting, too. To make this, you will need a plain tank top. Get strips of knit fabric in the same color as your tank top and pin pleats along the neckline. Do several layers and sew into place.

Rosette-Embellished Isn't this romantic? Who knew that rosettes can make a workout-perfect tank top into a date night staple? This idea is also great for those who do not care for sleeveless tops. To do this, you will need to ruffle fabric along your neckline and then sew rosettes to keep your new “shoulders” in place. Great fabrics to use for this project are types that flow and drop beautifully, such as chiffon.

Bow Ruffle

Bow Ruffle What lovely detailing! This is one tank top project that will give you a great wardrobe piece perfect for any time of the year. This is great for warm season when sewn in comfy knit. If you choose non-stretch, you will basically make a nice blouse to pair with an autumn or winter cardigan.

Fabric-Embellished This is something that I've done several times with my tank tops. This is great for those who love to craft with fabric scraps. To do this, you will simply add rectangular pieces of fabric to the front neckline of the tank top. Add buttons and ruffled details for more texture and visual interest.
