Butterfly Kisses Tank

I found this cute tank top at a clothes swap last fall.

I loved everything about it, except for the huge hole near one shoulder where the previous owner had removed some embellishments.

Six months later, at another clothes swap, I found the inspiration for my salvage operation - this lacy tee.

I cut the yokes on both tops and swapped out the lace for the damaged butterflies. I was even able to reuse the butterfly tank's armhole and collar bindings.

Now I have a not-so-holey tank top, as well as some leftover lace to add to my refashion pile for a future project.
