Fashion Friday – Tank Upgrade


Hello fellow fashion lovers! It’s Fashion Friday, and I have quick and easy tank upgrade to share with you! I had so much fun doing my t-shirt makeover, I thought that it was time for another fashion DIY!

I was going through my closet the other morning, frantically looking for something to wear (I was running a tad late) and I came across one of my favorite tops. It is just a plain blank tank, but I LOVE the material. It is nice and flowy, not too heavy and it hangs just right. This tank is my go-to when I want something comfortable, but still a little dressy. I threw it on and headed out the door. When I got to work, I went to the bathroom and it wasn’t untilΒ I looked in the mirror that I noticed my favorite tank had a small problem.Β 13699579_10154374843174851_892655969_o

The eyelet hole at the front of the tank was all ripped and frayed. Ohhh man! Not my favorite top! It’s not that it was expensive or anything. It was from Wal-Mart, and I think it cost me a whole whoppin’ nine bucks, but I just love it so.

Something inside me was telling me not to throw it out, though. And that something was right! Today I was in Michael’s and I stumbled across these beauties…13730667_10154374843144851_1241296465_o

(BTW… my husband took one look at these and then stated he was going to the grocery store to get Neapolitan ice cream… I can totally see why)

I have passed by these several times in Michael’s, and wondered what I could use them for. I love stuff like this, but couldn’t justify the price tag. Today, I had a 50% off coupon and knew just what I could do with these beauties. So I scooped them up (they rang up at about $4 after I used my coupon), raced home and got my favorite tank!

This project took me a whole 10 minutes to complete and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome!

So easy! All I needed was my tank, the flowers, and a needle and thread.Β 13699464_10154374843159851_1116247500_o

Oh, and my Timmies!13709445_10154374843209851_2103045107_o

Steeped Tea, 2 milk, 1 sugar. This is how we DIY in Canada. πŸ™‚

First thing I did was make sure I liked the look of the flowers on the tank. I removed them from the packaging and placed them where I wanted them to be.13728335_10154374843214851_2132964852_o

I started by hand sewing the middle flower on first. I suppose you could try and use fabric glue if you don’t like to sew.Β 13694296_10154374843239851_268607486_o

This tank was great for this project. Because of the eyelet in the middle of the tank, I didn’t need to find the middle. I just sewed the flower right over top. I then sewed on the other two flowers on either side of the white flower.13718092_10154374843074851_1416661688_o


Ignore my giant nose πŸ˜‰

So what do you think?13728484_10154374843149851_1803792529_o (1)13709532_10154374843154851_2129645114_o

Not only did I manage to save my favorite tank, I made it ten times better!

Let me know what you think about this DIY!
