Better Than Victoria’s Bandeau

07-bandeauSchool starts in less than a month which means it’s time to start thinking about back to school clothing. One particular favorite of my daughter’s is the bandeau – which is perfect to wear under tank tops, shirts with wide side openings, or more see-through shirts. The thing about those bandeaus is that the really cute ones (or at least the ones that everyone is buying from Victoria Secret) runs about $20. So instead of spending a fortune on a rainbow of tiny tube tops, I decided to try make my own.

For my trial run, I decided to use Jalie 2565¬†view B and omitted the string ties. While it’s difficult to see in the photo because I used black fabric, this bandeau has a banded upper casing and a gathered front detail. The fit is spot on for my daughter and she said it was very comfortable to wear (in fact she wore it out last night) so we’ll definitely be making more of these in the coming weeks!
