I love this Black Crepe Tank Top...It Can be Dressed Up or Down...Casual or Fancy...BUT...the Gaps at the Armholes are Distracting and Totally Uncomfortable to Wear...And the Gaps Create a Direct View of All the Underpinnings...Ugh....Not a Pretty Look.

Is This Tank a Toss??? NO!!

With a Bit of So Sew Simple Magic, This Tank Can be a Real Winner...

Here's the Hot Tip to Fix the Armhole Gaps...Fast and So Sew Simple!

Ready to Get Rid of the Gaps??? Let's Go!!

DIY Fix for Armhole Tank Gaps...Fast!

The Black Crepe Tank Top...Classic and Fun...and a Fabulous Price...Only Problem...the "Gappy" Underarm Fit.

Similar Tank...Amazon LINK.

First...Try on the Tank and Measure the Underarm Area that Gaps...This one had about a 2 Inch Gap...

The Cut of the Tank is a Close to the Body Fit...The Underarm Gap Ruined the Sleek Look of the Tank.

Next...Pin the Triangle Gap Each Armhole. Be sure to Match the Gap Piece so that each Underarm is the Same...

Then...Sew a Diagonal Seam from the Bottom Center of the Underarm to the Side Seam of the Tank.

Done and Done!! Using Black Thread on a Black Tank makes the diagonal seam almost disappear.

Now...Try On the Tank to see the Fit...

Smooth, Sleek, and Very Comfortable to Wear...

And No Armhole Gaps!!!
