Made from formerly stuffy button down shirts, these summer tanks are roomy, breezy and much more conducive to fun that they were in their previous life.

**Fabric note** This shirt is 100% cotton, formerly a 5x mens shirt. Small check pattern, white pearl buttons,a nicemedium weight fabric that will continue to get softer the more you wash it.

When ordering, choose a size that gives you about 4 inches of ease around your chest.

For example, if you have a 48 inch bust and a 50 inch hip, choose a shirt that has at least 52 inches to wiggle around in. (26 inch lie-flat measurement) That said, even 8 or 12 inches extra will look good. Also, I tack down the first 2 or 3 button lengths along the front to prevent gaping shirt syndrome, but the bottom buttons can be undone for extra room and coolness.

Since all my button down shirts can be unbuttoned, it is easy to make extra hip room, and layering with a thin tank can solve any exposure issues.

Measurements are as follows.
length from top casing to lower edge hem along the center line
22 inch (55cm)

width (lying flat) from side to side across chest under arm opening
33 inch (83 cm)

The dressform is a size 18 with a 45 inch (114 cm) bust.

Each replaceable shoulder strap or ribbon is approximately 90 inches (230 cm) long. This should give you plenty of length to adjust strap length any way you like, and even split the strap for two separate ties, if you wish.

There are a few customizations that I offer at no additional charge, BUT YOU MUST TELL ME AT THE TIME YOU PLACE YOUR ORDER.
1. Do you want your tie color changed? At this time I offer black or unbleached muslin.
2. Do you want me to split the tie into two lengths?
