When I saw annesofie’s skulls, I said to myself I want a cool tube top, so I ran to my stash and made this. I used yellow gingham that I got at walmart for 50 cents a yard and white muslin to line it. I didn’t use a pattern, because this was an experiment to see how a cut out between the bust piece and the waist piece would work, for future design plans. The top zips up the back.

Material Notes

yellow gingham, bleached muslin, zipper





annesofie for the idea

Wal-mart for selling the cheapest fabric

    I’m very into the whole retro look lately, and have even purchased a bandeau style one piece bathing suit to sport this year…(not that I’ve had even one second of free time for the beach..boo).

    I think this is adorable and inspiring! Can’t wait to see more!
