Hip Hop Tank Tour

Welcome to our stop on the Love Notions Hip Hop Blog Tour! Genie and Alisha have two versions of the Hip Hop Tank to share with you today.

I (Alisha) chose to make the Hip Hop tank with sleeves. Fall is rapidly approaching in North Dakota, and I knew I wouldn’t get as much wear out of a sleeveless shirt. While digging through my fabric stash, I found this coral colored lace I had been hoarding from Hobby Lobby. I decided to layer it over a gray cotton lycra. I made a couple modifications to my shirt. First I lengthened it by 2 inches. I’m about 4″ taller than the height Tami drafts for and I find that adding a bit of length just makes everything fit better. I also prefer my shirts on the longer side. I also widened the neckband to add a bit more of the gray around the neck.


To make my overlay, I simply cut the front and back out of both the lace and gray. Then I basted them together along all the sides before assembling my shirt as normal. This is only the second Hip Hop Tank¬†I’ve made but I have several more planned out in my head! It’s a great, quick sew that is a perfect basic addition to my wardrobe.

Next up…Genie’s version!

My daughter who is an avid dancer has been asking for tanks to wear for dance. When I saw a similar tank on Etsy, I found my inspiration for the Hip Hop Tank!

The simple lines of the Hip Hop Tank were perfect for adding this heat transfer vinyl too! For this tank, I used athletic wear fabric I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby for only $4! This version is the tank cut line with the straight hem. It’s a perfect addition to my dancer’s wardrobe! I already have a tulip hem version cut out for myself ūüôā Make sure you check out the other stops on this blog tour and enter the giveaway for a $50 credit to Love Notions!
