Core Worlds Couture With Jay Krebs
In this special edition of Core Worlds Couture, you’ll be learning how to upscale those old t-shirts of yours into awesome tank tops! The best thing about it? You’ll feel like you went shopping and got new clothes…for FREE!!!
Check out the presentation below! I hope you’ll like this tutorial, and PLEASE let me have your feedback – I need to know what you thought, how I could improve my teaching/instruction, etc.!
Let’s begin by watching these two videos:
- 1/2. Cut off both sleeves INSIDE the seam (scrap).
3. Cut off the top, just under the neckline (scrap).
4. Cut off the bottom hem (scrap)
5. Cut another strip just above the bottom hem – this will be your strap.
Step Two: Make the Casing For the Strap
Fold the top edges of the front and back of the shirt down to the INSIDE of the shirt, and measure about 1″. Pin in place. You are creating a place for your strap to “live” later…!
Sew with longer stitches (don’t forget to backstitch at the beginning and end), keeping the edge of the presser foot against the raw edge of your casing. DO NOT STRETCH the material as you sew, or your seam will become puckered.
