Black Silk Tent: Refashion #3

So, I decided my Monday morning would be well spent finishing off the refashion of this leftover pant leg. I started out by ripping open the seam (my neckline) to create a V.

I followed this by trimming up the 'straps', finishing everything off and taking in the sides a bit. And now I've got a nice casual silk tank.

I still had the waistband from the original pants laying around, so I closed up the bottom edge and buttoned it around my waist for a much more figure-flattering look...this is my favorite.

And here's the before and after:

Wanna see the full progression these pants took? Take a look! I love that I got 3 new pieces for $4 :).

Another lovely piece. It could go fancy-dress, no problem!
