might work for making those nursing tops?

and pretty cheap:

took me a bit to find it, but here is the original link that was shared:

http://thejensonjaunts.blogspot.com/...n-nursing.html

might not work since the back looks scooped instead of perpendicular?

Yea it's a great idea but I don't think it would. I would probably do it different an get the nursing bra clasps and sew those onto the straps. I'd assume it'd be just as easy.

Would it really matter since the back would always be covered?

I assume the tanks need to be fitted tight since you won't have support to keep it up then? Clever idea!

Took me awhile to figure out how the whole thing worked since you're clipping the straps and I think it works because of the straight back and - like you said - the tight fit. With these scoop backs, the tops might be flappy. A good seamstress could prolly cut it straight and 'hem' it or whatever. I, however, am not a good seamstress.

I need to decide quickly though cause the sale ends quickly!

But the expense goes up if you purchase more hardware the idea being quick and cheap.

Interesting idea. I actually ordered those tanks the other day, just because I wear tank tops under everything, nursing or not. Good deal for lots of colors! Will have to try to make a few nursing tanks.

I agree - I'm not sure if the scoop back would work but that's a great deal! I've been trying to find tanks that would work and be affordable. I'll do some searching around online.....I need to hurry up and find something!

I've looked around online and will probably end up ordering the cheap ones from Forever 21. They start at $2.80 a piece. I hate buying clothing online though....I never know what size to get, especially now. http://www.forever21.com/Product/Cat...ry=basic_camis

yeah... those have straight backs.. might be a better fit for this. I love the idea of 12/$30, and I need tanks no matter what.. but $3 isn't bad either.

although I think I'd have to get the $4 ones cause I was worried the camis would be too short for my long torso and one of the reviews mentions that they're short for a long torso.

it's nice that they list the actual length on there.

Exactly. I'm just suggesting how it could work with this style tank
