Ruffled rose tank
Saw this cute tutorial over at Adventures in Dressmaking this past weekend and couldn't resist whipping one up right away. I had the perfect ill-fitting, boat neck 3/4 quarter sleeved top that was already destined for the donation pile and am so glad I could rescue it as I love all things sea-faring related. It was so simple and a project you can complete in just under two hours. Here is the original from Kate Spade:
The original almost looks like a seashell rather than a rose, but perhaps the material was a little thicker. The thin, super stetchy fabric I used had my rose so wilted so I had to topstitch it down in a asterisk shaped pattern. Nonetheless, a great way to dress up a plain, striped top. Thanks for sharing, Suzannah!
