Having been lusting over garments like this in people's crafting blogs for months, and having some free time on my hands, I decided to add some whimsical ruffle blossoms to the neckline of an old, but still in good condition, tank top I had lying around.

The finished product:

And the before pic:

I could have made smaller blossoms and made it less heavy in general, which is why I decided not to do both sides fully. I need to find away to tack them on more neatly when they are by themselves. It was totally a learning experience but it took me about an hour from start to finish and I'm not complaining! I have a new top to wear for free, right?

Thanks for your comments!
