I'm very excited to post my first project on here.  It's a gift for my aunt, who let husband and I crash at her place on our road trip.  She bought me this pink tank top when I was 10.  I wore it so often, it's almost see-through.  I retired it to the back of my drawer about 5 years ago because I couldn't part with it.  I thought of it when we were visiting her and just had to make her a thank you gift. 


original tank top


cut out front and fused bias tape to edges


fused tank top to denim (for strength), lined with pink fabric, magnetic snap, even added a zipper a la SewPixie's zipper tutorial


interior (lining a bit baggy)

Thanks for looking!

very cool!  She will love it, especially if she remembers you wearing the tank top - it willhave extra meaning for her.

Looks great!
