Like the alliteration?
I've had this one tank top for about goodness, 6(?) years or so now, since high school. And sadly, it lost all of the elasticity in the straps, which made it unwearable for the past year or so.
However, with my new understanding of shirring, I was able to fix this in about 10 minutes. Hooray for a new lease on a favorite item!
