I made the Tara top out of two old pillowcases that my mom had tossed into the rag bin. I was like, “Wait, I can use those!” I only had 1/2" elastic, instead of 1/4" so I couldn’t fit it into the casing. So I put on my thinking cap and TADA! Contrasting bias tape! To balance out the black and add prettiness I embroidered the hem and the sleeves. I am in anticipation for warm weather so I can wear my cute summer top!
