I had my baby about a month ago, and now I’m in the lovely stage of almost constantly nursing. In this stage I need a shirt with really easy access and pretty good coverage. I also don’t like wearing a lot of layers because I get hot easily, and I want less complication. So I came up with a easy-to-wear and easy-to-make shirt. It’s a tank top shortened for easy nursing access and attached to the shirt for easy wearing, and it’s only three steps with minimal sewing!
- button up shirt or button up cardigan
- tank top
- sewing supplies
- Gather your button up shirt and tank top. I’m using a tank top that had previously been a nursing tank; that’s why it doesn’t have any straps.
- Put the tank top on and measure wear your waist is. Take the tank top off and cut where you measured.
- Open up the shirt and lay the tank top inside. Tack with a sewing machine the sides of the tank top to the side seams of the shirt. Tack the straps to the shoulder seams.
Now wear your fantastic new nursing shirt! The tank can show for a layered look but is easily pulled up for nursing access. You could put together lots of fun variations that are easy and comfortable to wear!
