So I've had this tank for forever and I never wore it because the v was built so low that my boobs would regularly fall out of it, and anyway the boobie holder area was too small. I got around to adding a little bit in between the square and putting some ruffle on top.

It's really not much, but I'm sort of proud of it 'cause my clothing sewing skills aren't too good. Also, I figure what the heck-maybe someone will be inspired by it and make their own from scratch or something, instead of reconning.

Enough jabber, here are the pictures.

That's it after I put the bit in between the V.

Then I added some lace on top.

Sorry they're sideways. And also, I must not have stretched the fabric tight enough in the middle because there are those little wrinkles if I don't pull it up occasionally.

Nice recon!  I love the fact that it's now sexy without being skanky.  Lace is always a good choice!

So much to make, so little time!
