This tutorial came about because it was requested on youtube to teach a finish for stretched fabrics. You can use this technique on intimates and swimwear! Let’s get started!
Supplies you will need to complete this project:
Plain Tank Top
Marking Tool (Fabric Chalk or Water Soluble Marker)
Seam Ripper (for mistakes!)
Step 1: Mark on the tank top (on yourself or on a dress form) where you would like to crop it to.
Step 2: Draw a straight line across the tank top where you marked it, making sure to do it on both sides so that it matches back to front.
Step 3: Measure the width of your elastic and make a marking that measurement away from the original line. Ex: my measurement was 3/8″ so I marked 3/8″ away from the original crop line I made.
