We accidentally put our tank tops on backwards the other day...and here's the result:
Inspiration: The Battlestar Galactica unisex tank top.
Gear you'll need for your Design + Conquer DIY mission:-Two identical racer back tank tops
1 Hunt for two identical inexpensive racer back tank tops.
DC DO IT [yourself] tip: buy one size larger that you would normally purchase to allow for seams. We found ours at H&M for only $7! Also, try on the tanktop backwards first, to make sure the racer back proportions work well with your shape.
3 Match up racerback sides of the tank tops [put aside the non-racerback sides of the tank tops so you don't get them mixed up—you can make another non-Battlestar-style tank top later].
4 Pin the two racerback sides together [tops of shoulders and sides only].
5 Sew the sides and tops of shoulders, and clip off any extra thread, etc. Turn the tank top right-side out and see how it fits. Make adjustments as needed.
6 Accessorize with your favourite Design + Conquer earrings! We recommend DC's battle-ready Preset earrings: http://designandconquerjewellery.com/products/preset-earrings
BSG tanktop + DC Preset earrings = Happy hunting!
The tank top in action: The top we chose to work with was loose-fitting and had translucent fabric. We layered it over a black strapless top for a retro-inspired twist.
You and your new BSG-inspired tank top are ready for combat!
