DIY Crop Top From Tank Top with Alternate Hem



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

Matching Thread

Sewing Machine


Measuring Tape


Marking Tool (Fabric Chalk or Water Soluble Marker)

Seam Ripper (for mistakes!)

Fabric Scissors

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.

Tami Roman Rushed To The Hospital 

tami-romanWe hope Tami gets well soon!

According to reports, “Basketball Wives” star Tami Roman was rushed to the hospital yesterday after she passed out from stress and dehydration. Tami was diagnosed with diabetes and, along with her grueling schedule — working on a nail polish line, another reality TV show and a book – and projects, the pressure may have gotten the best of her.

“Tami is rehabilitating at a private hospital in Houston and is expected to make a full recovery. Tami is currently filming two TV shows, traveling back and forth between Houston & Los Angeles so her body became overwhelmed.”

The busy reality star will be hitting the small screen again with a co-staring role in StevenSpielberg’s TV series “Extent.”

Hopefully Tami gets better soon so that she can bring her A-game to the new show.
