Strappy Chiffon Tank Top – Burdastyle 10/2014 #117

I made this layered top fairly quickly, using only vintage cotton remnants, and I had just the right amount of fabric for both tops (I have many small to medium sized left-over fabric pieces in my stash, mainly remainders from the 70s lol). For the underneath top, I think the material may be slightly more thicker than was needed, well its thicker than the over top lol, but I liked the color match. I had to make sure the straps were sewn on strongly, as one came off during a fitting lol, these woven fabrics have no give at all. Well that’s my last offering for the year before I go house-sitting haha (I am not taking my sewing machine lol). Location: St Mary’s Bay.

Material Notes

tightly-woven medium-weight 70s cotton in crimson, and light-weight 70s cotton with floral print.
