I don't have a sewing machine
as I have tried several and I find they either stink of plastic or they are hard to control.
So this was done by hand.
I tend to be heavy footed so a touch of the pedal and away goes the machine eating my fabric. I am now looking for a vintage Singer treadle sewing machine, I think this may just be exactly what I need and they look pretty darn cool too.
So for now I do small projects which I can hand sew. Recently my organic cotton pillow case got torn and it had lovely eyelet lace on the edge. I also had a cute tank top that was a little short to wear with leggings as I prefer a tunic length to cover the butt.
So I re-purposed both the pillowcase and the short tank to become a vintage style tunic tank and I now love it.
Here is the tank before:
I simply turned it inside out and followed along the current
surged seam sewing the eyelet to the inside:
Then flipped it to the outside and pressed it:
A simple way to spice up an old tank and make use of a torn pillow case :)
