Striped Birthday Tank

Boy number three turned four yesterday. To celebrate, I made him a striped tank.

The tank is self-drafted and upcycled from an XL men’s tank top.

The stripes on this tank are so rad. I love finding t-shirts on clearance to use as fabric, because sometimes you can find some fabulous prints that you can’t find elsewhere.

Tanks are quick and easy; I made this one in less than 20 minutes – including a serger re-thread!

He loves this tank so much, he insisted on sleeping in it as well. Point one for mama-made!

I used ribbing for the neckline and coverstitched the armholes. You can get this same effect with a double needle.striped tank 8
I love four. When they’re really out of toddler-hood, but not quite a kid. You can reason with them, but they still curl in your lap and need you to kiss their owies. So perfect. :)

Happy sewing, friends!

  1. FAB photo shoot– love the FIRST & final photo (SAME) of your 4-yr old wearing his striped tank top. I like the colors of the stripes: white, orange, navy & turquoise, all with light grey in between. So versatile to wear with any color shorts in warm/hot weather. Bet he LOVES it! THANKS FOR SHARING.

I'd love to hear what YOU think
