Embellished tanks

A while back Old Navy was having a 50% off sale on all of their clearance items.  I grabbed a few tanks that ended up being only $1 each so I could embellish them myself.  Now I wish I would've just grabbed the whole stack.

I patterned this one after a J.Crew top I already had:

With a little investigating, it was easy to tell just how to recreate it

I bought 2 tops of the same color, so I cute up one of them for the flowers

I just cut a bunch of 2 1/2" squares,

folded each one in half twice, and cut out a petal, keeping the middle section in tact.

Then I did that over and over, pinned them where I wanted them (with the petal pointing downwards), and hand sewed the top point of the petal to the shirt.


Here is another one I did:

Eat your heart out J.Crew. 


  1. wow! yours look better than the j. crew one!

  2. Love this idea thanks for the inspiration :)
