Description

I really love the idea of recycling and refashioning the old garments and giving them a new life. I created this top from an old unwanted knit fabric skirt I had forever. Although I loved the pattern I did not like the fit and wore it just a couple of times. For this project I chose Simplicity 2364 pattern, view D, one shoulder tank top with gathered left shoulder. Had to make a few alternations. After the top was done I had an idea to make fabric flower to dress it up.

    Great job, looks very nice on you and it’s a recycle, so extra karma points :)
