A while back on Facebook, I posed a question about nursing wear and requested recommendations. My friend, Aubrey, pointed me to this blog site and I knew I had hit the jackpot!
So here’s the little craft I’ve been up to lately: nursing tanks.
These tanks work with the nursing bras as an undershirt to keep you from baring your belly when lifting your shirt. Sure, you could just pull the neck of your shirt down instead, but you’ll likely end up with stretched-out necks. Additionally, if your child is anything like mine, you’ll end up with dribbled milk on your collar anyway.
So I gathered my supplies: a selection of $2.80 Forever 21 tanks, scissors, a needle, some thread (didn’t match, but didn’t care since it’s an undershirt) and some fray guard (’cause I already had it).
I cut the strap off of the back (though I’m sure a seam ripper would have looked more professional).
Looping the bitty strap around, I stitched it into a tiny loop. (This shot is from the back of the left side.)
Thanks, Aubrey, for passing this along! This was such an inexpensive solution that has allowed me to continue wearing the shirts that I already own as now I can just layer them over all of my crafty nursing tanks.
Feel free to like/share and pass along this post if you know moms who would benefit from this! I’m tempted to make these as gifts for expecting mothers who are inclined to give nursing a go.
