Have you ever wondered how I make so many clothing items from scratch without a pattern? Well, sometimes I don’t! Though I don’t buy traditional patterns, I do use clothing I already own to create patterns for new clothing items.
In this case, I put together a quick and easy peplum tank top that’s perfect for the summer using a jersey knit from Fabric Wholesale Direct using a tank top I already owned as a pattern. By turning the tank top inside out, you can see where all of the seams are, which can help you to understand how it was constructed. By tracing around the neck and arm holes, and then adding a little extra length in the body to account for darts, this shirt will come together in no time!
