I made a new skirt for Ella and decided to make a matching tank. I added the applique and felt it needed a little something more. The little ruffled flutter sleeves are a perfect way to add some color and fun to a plain tank.
First, cut a rectangle that is around 7 inches long and 3 1/2 inches.
Fold in half lengthwise, wrong sides together, iron.
Cut the open side (not folded side) into a slight curve.
I cut one side then folded in half to cut the other side so it would match.
Sew with a long stitch on the open curved side.
Gently pull the bobbin thread to gather the ruffle.
Turn tank inside out. I folded my ruffle in half and started pinning in the middle. So the sides would be even. Pin onto tank. Sew. Don't forget to back stitch at the beginning and end.
Turn right side out. Now you have a Super Cute tank!
