Style for Style: AWOL Drawstring

Funny how a simple drawstring can add a touch of sportif to a garment, take this Edun 'Lessing' Drawstring Tank, $95, for example. So simple, yet so sporty! Oh yes, they are supposed to be functional too. But don't you hate it when a drawstring gets all funky and loses its way? Whether the drawstring is halfway through the little fabric tube or completely AWOL here is an easy solution! I learned this one from my crafty mom.

To see my simple trick to rescue a drawstring,

Whoever invented the safety pin was brilliant because this is all you need to salvage your drawstring. Just pierce the pin through one end of the string and guide the pin through the tunnel. Once you have restored it, I suggest tying double knots to prevent future drawstring slippage!

My mom used to tell me about that trick growing up but I never seem to have a safety pin around which usually results in me chucking the strings.

I am with CestLavie and anaindallas, $95 is way too much to spend on a plain white cotton tank top. The ribbon idea is super awesome! Good idea, pinup! I have a jacket in mind right now.

And even if you lose the little string, you can replace with with a cute colorful ribbon.
