Quick Fix (on a Cute Tank)

I am lucky enough to live within walking distance of both Ross Dress for Less (only calling by it's full name because it irritates my sister Bethany) and a TJMaxx. This means I have many opportunities to buy cheap things!The other day I spotted this cute little tank at TJM for only $2.00! The only problem -- the straps were ridiculously long.
"One Size Fits Most"?! Perhaps you should have said "One Size Fits Most -- Except It Doesn't Really." Anyway, I'm not trying to complain here. Instead, I am trying to point out how nice it is to be able to sew. While other fashionistas had to pass this two-buck-treasure by, I was able to snatch it up.
A few stitches (in thread that doesn't match but it's close enough and no one is looking that closely anyway) and two snips of my scissors later, I have a new tank that fits perfectly!
I will wear it to add a little lacy interest to my (many) shirts that require a tank underneath. How's that for a quick fix?
