4. Measuring tape
5. Needle and thread
1. Measure your bust
The first step towards making a tube top is to take a measuring tape, either in inches or centimeters and measure your bust. While doing so, make your tape tight around your torso, so that you get the accurate tube top made. You don’t actually need to worry about the comfort part because the fabric which you are using will be adjustable and you just need to sport it with perfection.
2. Mark the fabric
Now, you need a marker to mark the fabric. Do it according to the measurement that you have taken before. Your marking should be clear enough, so that you don’t get confused while cutting the edge.
3. Trim the fabric
Now, comes the time to do the cutting. So, take a sharp scissor and start the trimming according to the measurement given. Caution should be taken while cutting the outline. Make sure no zig zag is done. Your little attentiveness can make a perfect cut for the tube top.
4. Mark the other end of the fabric
The lower part needs to be marked. Do the marking five inches down from the top.
5. Cut from sides
Start cutting the fabric from sides to the new set of mark. Then join these set of marks to do the ties. During the process, keep in mind that the fabric doesn’t gets torn.
6. Trim the bottom of the tube top
Now, when the cutting of the upper part is done, all you have to do is to trim the bottom. There is a special strategy which you can try doing. Tie the tube top around your bust and check the length you need to cut from the bottom. If you wish to get a cut out back then you can trim it further. The cut out back gives a very appealing factor to the tube top.
7. Hem the top to make it beautiful
One final optional thing to do is to hem the tube top to make it ever lasting and beautiful. But, remember you should previously decide this. Working on hem can make the top shorter. While you are doing the hem make sure that the thread which you are using should be of the same color as that of the tube top. With just some money you can make a wonderful tube top.
