I made this anthropologie-inspired tank top from a 100-yen-shop large man's t-shirt and a muslin scarf, also from Daiso. The bits of ribbon I had on hand so the total cost of the project was less than $2. You can find step-by-step pics and a detailed tutorial on my blog.

I cut off the sleeves, and cut a square neckline, and I left all the edges raw. I smocked the base of the neckline in outline stitch and trellis stitch, then added a strip cut from the muslin scarf behind.
The rest of the scarf and the sleeves were made into fabric flowers - round-petaled kanzashi, stacked circles, and large floppy 'roses' made by folding circles of fabric into 6 segments. I also made some short pleated ruffles from scraps of ribbon. Finally I sewed the whole lot round the neckline.

The smocking is rather wobbly but I'm pleased with how it turned out!
