J.Crew bib necklace

J.Crew, Banana Republic, Nordstrom, and plenty of others have these big bib necklaces in this season.  I'm not sure how I feel about them, but an easy way to test the waters is by making a similar one.  I bought this top for $3.50 on clearance at Marshall's because the ribbon straps were tearing off.
So, I cut the seams that attached the rosettes to the cheap poly stretch blend shirt.  I cut off three rosettes on either side, leaving the three large flowers centered.  I used some thin black satin ribbon and sewed it on.
Check out my inspirations:

Mine doesn't have the sparkle of the beaded and be-gemmed ones for $250, but it gives the look and feels about the same to wear.  It's awfully nice that jewelry has ribbon and other easy-to-copy looks this season!
