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 [1], $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.
