Tank Top Sassification Inspiration...

I have three brand new (tags still on!) ribbed tank tops waiting for my time and some sassification inspiration. They are boring and bland, just a plain heather gray, black and navy. I want to just give em a little style and interest oomph...just a notch above humdrum.

We are still setting records of temperature lows and rainfall here in the Pacific NW, but I need some sort of (looking forward to) sunny weather project. So hopefully that means I can complete a few of these by the time sunny weather arrives.

These cascading ruffle embellishments are everywhere. I'm liking the tone-on-tone look:

Yes, I realize this one isn't a tank top, it's a tankini swimsuit top. Cute, huh? I'm loving the idea of an off-center knotted sash that helps cinch the smallest part of the ribcage to produce the hourglass effect:

Simple rows of casual eyelet lace let this ordinary tank become more delicate and feminine. Perfect for layering:

Simple rows of elastic thread detail give this tank a flattering pseudo v-neck:


Lastly, my fave! Just add a simple patterned bow tie to ramp up the style rating of your fave summer tank top:


Now, I just need to find a way to entertain my 2 and 4 yr old for hours on end while I play with my sewing stuff. Hmmmm, any ideas?

Hope it's sunny wherever you are!

  1. Totally cute, hope you get the chance to do some sewing. It's sunny and boiling hot out here in NC-- as in like 98 degrees by 11 this morning. Yuck! Enjoy your cooler weather, that's all I can say.

  2. Thanks for these ideas! These are cute ones.


C'mon, let's chat a bit...
