With all this warm weather, I needed something light to wear.  I decided to refashion some old tanks I had laying around.  I took the first tank and I laid the design on the back of the tank and moved it around until it was in a position I was happy with.  I pinned the material down so it wouldn't shift and then sewed the material to the tank.  I then cut the flower pattern from the rest of the panel.  I then sewed around the edge of the flower pattern again to reinforce it.  I was terrified that it would pull loose because the material seemed so delicate!  I turned the tank inside out and cut inside the stitching to remove the material.  This was the scariest part of the whole process even though I had teeny-tiny scissors.

A very cute idea for a plain top. And yes, I would have been nervous about the cutting too.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
