How to Make a High Necked Tank Top

So help me, I'm a genius.

Have you noticed that shirts are getting more and more low cut?  I've been wearing tank tops and t-shirts under most of my shirts for years, but the larger the size, the lower the front of the tank top.  Not much help!  My five-year-old turned to me on Saturday and said "Mom....that shirt is NOT modest.  When are you going to stop wearing it?"

OK, ouch.  I'm forever yanking on my tank tops, yanking on my shirt, yanking on EVERYTHING trying to keep a sense of decency!  (Let me tell you, babies do not appreciate prudishness in their mothers.)  Moms are always bending, sitting, stretching, moving...and clothes don't like to cooperate.

You ready for my amazing tank-top makeover?  Put it on backwards.  Yeah.

Problem solved!

Hahaha! That's what my 19 year old sister does. I'll have to remember that. Now that I've heard it from two people, maybe I'll retain this helpful bit of info! :)

Oh my gosh! I was just having this problem now that warmer weather is here. Brilliant - never thought to turn it around! I was about to go looking for camisoles, but they are low cut as well! Tomorrow is mending day - I may shorten some straps or add a modesty panel to some of my more formal items. It's a real pain to not find shirts and T's that don't fit properly!
