Embelished Racerback Tank

I have been very busy with life, in general; however, I managed to do some sewing.
Remember I posted about this embelished tank by Haute Hippie (photo from Nordstrom.com)?
Well, I drew from it and did something similar. The fabric is gray (cobalt) rayon jersey from gorgeousfabrics.com. The tank is bound with strips from the same fabric. The fabric flowers are sewn on a bib-like piece that I hand pick-stitched. Ribbon is inserted in the ends of the bib piece and is then threaded through the grommets, and tied behind the neck.


Racerback:
And here is how i wore it today - with a hoodie and a rabbit fur vest:


BTW, I got this ring from a thrift store. It is huge! I love it!

I made another one in salmon color rayon jersey but have not put grommets yet. Will post about it later!

Very cute top.

Fabulous! I have to show this to my 16-year-old daughter. She is always gravitating toward tanks just like this.

That's cool! Any grommet tips?

You look like you stepped off the pages of Lucky. Yes, I'm also interested in seeing where the grommet is attached, and the ribbon that ties behind your neck. What a cool top!

Wow, that is very, uniquely, beautiful. Very well styled, also.

Cindy said...

You look great! I love embellished tops. So original.

This is so cute, and you wear it well. I love the details you add to things. Always chic, and never overdone.
