Set up a workspace area. All it takes is a few minutes and a few supplies. For best results, use a sewing machine to get a tighter stitch rather than hand sewing it.
- Cut off the bottom of the tank top so that the length from the top of the shirt to the bottom of the shirt is 17 1/2 inches.
- Turn inside out.
- At the bottom of the shirt, fold sides in 3 inches and stitch 1/2 inch seam across the bottom.
- Turn right side out and you're ready to go shopping!
