Summer T-Shirt Recon by the Compai Girls!

August 15, 2008

I really love the Compai girls. They are creative, passionate and overall energetic and quirky. On today’s Threadbanger episode, they took a plain ‘ol wifebeater – ish tank top (P.S. why are they called wifebeaters?) and some scrap fabric to make it into a jazzy summer tank. I love this idea because it really doesn’t require much fabric ( you can probably use what you already have) and it literally takes minutes to do. Fabulous, I tell ya.

Plus they have a ton of other ideas and inspirations in their book series, 99 ways. Check that out!
