Silky Spots

I attempted to refashion this dress a couple years ago, but it just didn't work out as I planned. I couldn't even get the resulting dress over my chest. So it hung in my refashion closet until I could figure out how to salvage it.

In the end, I decided to go simple and make a basic tank top. I used an existing top as a pattern and some bias tape left over from another project as a contrasting facing around the neck and armholes.

Looks much better as a simple top! Well done the second time round.

I agree with Therese. It looks fantastic as a simple top. And with that outfit - looks really nice.
