A few weeks back, NYC was a steamy crock pot. With a last-minute Friday Happy Hour invite, I was tortured with what to wear. Sitting in the back of a taxi, zipping down 2nd Avenue, I’m mentally scanning my closet for what to wear.

Once home and riding up in the elevator, I remembered I worked the hell out of the end of spring Zara sale. I purchased many pieces, two of which were a pair of high-waisted shorts and a cross-front draped tank. I’m a frequent shopper at Zara so rarely do I need to try clothing on. However this time, I missed the mark when it came to sizing. The shorts, not a problem. The tank, dipped too low and was too big all over.

With a fifteen minute window before I needed to start getting ready, I pulled out my sewing box, dress form and sewing machine.
