You will need:
Take an existing tank top and place it on your pattern paper. Trace around it to make a pattern and alter it to your liking while adding a halter neckline. Add about 1⁄2 to 1 inch seam allowance when making the pattern.
Place the patterns you’ve made on the mesh fabric and cut two pieces of the main body piece and two sleeves. As you can see, the sleeves should line up with the top perfectly.
Match each side of the top and sew across to create a seam that connects the sleeves to the top.
After you’ve connected the sleeves to the top, lay it on a flat surface and sew along the sides to close it off. Your top should be sewn altogether at this point.
You can cut off any excess fabric from the seam.
Give about a 1/2 - 1 inch hem at the bottom and sleeves of the top for a cleaner look.
Try on your top. If the neckline is too high, mark and cut off any excess.
