Have you ever heard of Cami Secret? Well I hadn’t until last week when my sister told me about it. I went to their website, looked at it and immediately thought, “I can make that!” and so you can you. It’s super easy!
It’s a great alternative to wearing a tank top. It just hooks around your bra strap.
This is how I made it:
1) Measure the distance between your bra straps, then depending on how tight across you would like it, subtract 1/2 to 1/4 inch. I measured 8 3/4″ so I cut the piece of fabric 8 1/2″, so the top won’t sag at all. This will be the distance at the top of the fabric. Then cut the fabric in a triangle shape about 8-10 inches down.
2) Now for the elastic, I cut two 1 1/2″ pieces and sewed them onto the back of the fabric. This is a pretty snug fit, if you would like to be more adjustable cut the elastic 2″ long.
3) Then I sewed Velcro onto the back of the fabric, over the elastic. I used two 2″ strips of the soft side for the inside to make it adjustable. I then sewed two little 1/2″ pieces of the rough side onto the elastic.
4) For some extra cuteness, I put some lace onto the top on the fabric and sewed it onto the front of the fabric.
That’s it, it’s so easy and I great alternative for a tank top!!
I liked it so much, that I made another one, with lace
I love how it looks on, you can’t tell that it’s not a tank top.
Here are a few reasons I prefer it instead of a tank top:
-You don’t have to keep adjusting it
-It goes straight across, I love that look
-When I bend down, I don’t flash everyone
-It’s great for under a dress so you don’t have that horrible line at your waist from a tank top
-Not have to deal with another layer while nursing
