"I know I’m not alone when I say, I absolutely love Lulu Lemon, but I hate paying the high price tag. In today’s refashion tutorial, we’ll be creating this Lulu Lemon knockoff via this DIY workout tank from a sports bra you already have. This super-simple project takes less than an hour to complete and will completely transform your workout wardrobe. It pairs perfectly with my DIY Jogger tutorial if you want to make a full athletic outfit for less than $5."


  1. Start out by folding your fabric in half. Then cut it so you are left with a square that measures 24″ wide and 21″ tall. It should open up to be 48″ wide and 21″ tall. Sew along one of the 21″ sides to create a wide tube.

  2. Next, use the seam you just made to mark the center back of your DIY workout tank. Then, pin the seam to the back of your sports bra.

  3. Stretch your rectangular piece of fabric to find the opposite end (the center front) of the fabric and pin to the center front of your sports bra.

  4. Pin on either side of your center-front and center-back pins and let the excess fabric fall on the sides to create the draped look.

  5. Sew into place and then try your new shirt on! You should have a new, cute DIY workout tank!
