A friend suggested I convert it into a bag. Once I refolded the tank, the armholes became handles!
The tank languished for many years. However, yesterday, I decided to dig into the sewing UFO (Un-Finished Objects) stack and work my way through it. I finished 6 things including the bag!
This is the lining, fully interfaced. I laid the knit tank on top of the fabric and rough cut the shape.
I also added a pocket with some fabric that reminded me of the first garment I made for myself back in 9th grade. Yes, I made a wrap skirt with fabric in shades of brown with clusters of mushrooms all over. For kicks I searched for "1980's wrap skirt patterns" and found the exact same one on Etsy here. My teacher asked me twice if I was sure about the fabric choice. Of course I was! I wish I still had the skirt because it must have been most hilarious.
Once I had the body sewn and the corners tucked to make a flat bottom I had to clip and fold the lining into the handles one edge at a time.
Then sew each one after pinning before moving onto the next edge.
I did have to patch the top of the handle as I didn't cut the lining long enough to go over the shoulder/handle. You can barely see it.
Corner button that I think adds a nice detail to the bag.
Finished bag. I love it!
