Hello!
Sorry my bad English, I'm from Brazil.

I had this very old (and beloved) black T-shirt. So I decided to change it a little bit and give it a fresh new start with some pink details.




Details:



I don't know the right word in English, but I used a pink version of this material:


Hope you liked!
Thanks for looking  Cheesy Cheesy

Very sexy!  Do the sequins (the round things) go around to the back?

that is awesome, i love sequins but a lot of times they're overdone and gaudy;
this is great and a perfect way to just vamp up a plain tank, i love it.

did you use a sewing machine? i've thought about adding sequins to things before but i wasn't quite sure how

Very cute-- I love how the sequins are sparkly and fun, without being over-the-top flashy, so it could be worn day or night.  Comfy glamour is the best!!! I really like it, I might have to root through my drawers and see what I can find to do that with.  Cheesy   Love it!

Thank you for the "sequins", craftyhandbag. I just couldn't find it at my portuguese-english dictionary  Tongue

You liked! Cool! I'm happy.

I did it individually by hand. Very easy!
And only took about four hours. I've made this afternoon.

Here in Brazil is very hot and I decided to change my t-shirt for an outdoor party tonight! But as sugar-magnolia said, I think I'll use it during day too.

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!

If there is someone interested I can take some pictures and make a tutorial on how to fix (I don't know if it is the right verb for this action) the sequins by hand.

the verb would be sew, or affix, but your english is very good otherwise, the tank top is sooo cute, but I don't think i'd have the patience to sew every one of them on
