Sewing Dork – Help!

I got the idea for refashioning a tank top hereImage.  And I made it.  I just can’t get into it.  So I’m asking the Sewing Dork, the originator, for help.  Please and thank you.

  1. It’s my guess that it’s too tight where the two fabrics meet? If so, you need to undo your sewing and s-t-r-e-t-c-h it more while you sew the bottom to the tank top. You could try adding a zipper, but I don’t think rib knit is strong enough to hold a zipper. Good luck!

    • ya i think i’ll undo the sewing, take out some of the pleats which might give me an inch or hopefully two! the bottom fabric is unstretchable but i gotta make it work. thanks for your help!

      • i did it! i took out the pleats and but kept a couple. it fits! i also quickly made one for my two year old except she refuses to try it on. ah kids.
