Tank Top Love

Living in Texas means living in tank tops, at least for me.  And now I have discovered some amazing tank tops!  I've always hated trying to find a bra that I felt comfortable wearing under a tank top, it always showed in some way I wasn't comfortable with.  Shelf bras are a joke, they do nothing.  Here are my tank tops I am head over heels in love with:

They have a built in underwire bra, see: 2013-03-09 11.15.08.jpg
You order them by your bra size. I love them so much! I wear them with cardigans and a scarf to the office. I wear them by themselves on the weekends.  I only have the two right now, but am waiting on four more to arrive anyday now.  Here is where you can buy them:  I bought the ones that are half off, the neckline is a bit higher than I would prefer, but the price is right.  If you do an online search you can find coupon codes for free shipping.  These are going to be the basis for my new wardrobe.  Oh ,by the way, do not put them in the dryer.

Making Clothes

Since two of my five favorite pieces are ones that I've made.  I think it would be safe to continue making pieces for myself.  Recently I hemmed some pants and shirts, and that made me catch the sewing fever for a few weekends.  I made pajamas for both kids, but only managed to get a photo of one:

I then took out the projects for myself that I already owned patterns and fabric for.

I like the shirt, but not sure if I like it enough to make another.  I have some very special fabric coming, and want to make sure that I use it on a shirt I'll love.
