Here's where an easy DIY comes in. Can you thread a needle? Tie a knot? You can probably do this.
What to do without losing the aesthetics of the sheer panels? Why, line 'em in a stretchy nude fabric of course. I'll let the photos show the step-by-step, but basically I just traced a pattern, cut out my nude fabric, and stitched it onto the inside of the sheer mesh. Sound simple? It was. Check it out:
|Remember those leaf-rubbings from grade school? Same idea.|
Just lay paper and trace around the raised seams
Perfection not required - It needs to be a little larger than the area you'll
be sewing it on to.
|Not cute, but useful.|
|Pinned my pattern onto the tank top, and cut around it.|
Again, perfection not required. You want it a little big.
The excess can be trimmed off once it's sewn on.
|Since my nude fabric doesn't have a top or bottom side, I just cut |
two of the same pattern piece and flipped one over.
|Pinned on - Don't stretch the fabric. It should be lying easily|
over the area you're covering: No wrinkles or pulling.
|Stitched - Again, perfection not required. I used large stitches|
to accommodate for the stretch in my dress fabric.
|Et voila! "Sheer" with coverage!|
|Ready for action. Bra-strap-less action.|
