Lace Back Tank

I got this doily from a thrift store for $1. I've had it for a while with the intent of doing this and I've finally got around to it.


You will need:
Lace or crochet doily (you can get these at the dollar tree!)
Tank top (on hand)
Sewing machine

 First: Lay the lace over the back of your tank top.
 Then: pin the lace to the tank top starting at the shoulders (or where ever it fits best) and trim off any odd parts. You can see I trimmed the top and bottom middle and also the sides of the bottom corners.
 Then sew the top by the shoulders and the bottom edges.



Sew everywhere there are red lines


Like this

Then flip the tank inside out and cut out the portion of the tank top where the lace overlaps the tank.

Then you are all done. I LOVE IT! I love mustard yellow and I love lace.

Total cost: $1

    You could also do the same thing but do it to the hip area of a regular T. or the back... Use half of a circle doily

  18. So cute!! Think I'll add a light liner to it though, as I don't want my bra band to show through! LOL.

  19. I've had bridal appliques for years that I've been wanting to do this with, but on the front of the tank. Stark white is beautiful against any color tank.
