Ruffled striped tank

Yes, I'm in France, but I wanted to share with you a project I did before I left.  It's a super easy way to upgrade a tank!
I started with this ribbed striped tank from Gap, $3.99 on sale.
I used some cheap white quilter's cotton and made ruffles, and saved some for a fake placket.  I sewed it all down and added some vintage white buttons.  Way more fun this way!


  1. Oh my gosh I'm totally obsessed! I have recently been embellishing little t's with ruffle flowers. I have to try this idea, it looks awesome!

  2. Cute! What a cool way to improve a basic tank.
    Hope you are having a fantastic time in France!

  3. I love this! I want to do it. It's so much cuter updated!

  4. this is so cute....

  5. I love it! I love your blog b/c it gives me ideas on how to dress up or personalize my abundant maternity wear.

  6. This looks great! I have a similiar vest top, must try this.

  7. wow. this is ADORABLE. i love your blog, it makes me want to go and sew all day long. i envy you for making new things all the time.

  8. You have me absolutely dreaming in ruffles now!

  9. I love it! There are so many possibilities with this design. I'm excited to see what you make with J Crew inspiration.

  10. Love them ALL! I nominated you for a sweet blog award. check out the details on my blog.

  11. This is great! I am copying this immediately! BTW- I love your blog. <3
