Little Rock, Ark...






I found this burnt orange jersey knit at the fabric store a few weeks ago for $1.50 per yard! So I was really greedy and bought almost the whole bolt….I’m going to be studying abroad in Florence this summer and I really need some summery tops, so this is the first of many. ha. I added the olive green jersey braid for straps and the corner of a crochet table cloth that was my grandmothers, around the neckline. I thought the color combo was very anthro. I just used a tank top that I already had as a pattern, which was not that great of a decision.

Material Notes

burnt orange-stretchy jersey knit; olive green braided straps-tshirt; crochet accent-grandmother’s tablecloth

    I love crocheted details on sewn clothes! And this does have an Anthro feel to it—nice.
