10 Refashioned Tank Tops for the Dog Days

Holy summer, y'all! It's been in the 90s here in Atlanta for pretty much a month straight. Sleeves are just not happening. You would have to be a mad woman to sport sleeves in this weather. Luckily, you don't have to. Here are 10 DIY ways to get your tank top on.

1. T-Shirt Halter - Turn an out-of-season long sleeved tee into a bangin' halter top.

2. Ribbon Tank - This is another upcycled tee. Lana Red transformed an oversized men's tee into a sweet tank top with an embroidered heart on the front.

3. Ruffle Tank Top - Turn a boring old tank top from your closet into a super cute top with ruffle details.

4. Shirred Tank - Grab an old tee and turn it into a flattering tank top with a shirred top.

5. Pocket Tunic - Turn a thrifted button down top into a super cute tank with POCKETS!

6. Flowy Tank - This is another men's shirt transformation, and I would like 80 of them in my closet, please.

7. Basic Ribbon Tank - This is a bare-bones t-shirt to tank top transformation.

8. Peter Pan Collar Tank - Old ribbed tank plus vintage hankie equals super twee tank top action!

9. Doily Back Tank - I know, "doily" and "sexy" don't seem to go together, but this tutorial makes it work.

10. No-Sew T-Shirt Tank - Who says that you need sewing skills to make your own clothes? Not Lulu & Sweet Pea!

    Tanks are not really my thing (except worn underneath something else), as I live in chilly San Francisco, but I love the flowy tank and doily back ideas. Wish I could sew :0( I love the idea of upcycling stuff you find at the thrift store or even in your closet.
