2 Thoughts on Upcycled Tank Top

  1. that is so cool…i think that you can change the color of the taktop and have the ruffles like a plain color than that would look really awesome!!!

  2. i think this is gorgeous!! its given me many ideas & inspiration for my 12 yr old granddaughter & me to make her a similar top!! we will try it on top w/sleeves so she can wear it to school!! thanks so much!! im new to the internet but not to sewing & have been searching for projects for me to sew & 12 yr old to do on her own! she is learning to sew but this will be more of an “instant gratification” project for her i think. so thanks again!!
