Refashioned Top

In this week's Creative Space I finally whipped up a quick refashion I've had in the works for a while.
I've also submiited it to Project Restyle's Flickr group too:

When going through my Mum's stash ages ago I found these pretty white lace motifs:

 I have not sure where she got them, I think it was from an embellished tablecloth and she unpicked the motifs. When I saw them I thought they would look great stitched onto a black top of some kind... and so the search for a suitable black top began... Which ended up being harder than I thought because I only buy thrifted and I just needed some sort of plain black top in my size...

At last I thrifted a black slightly sparkly knit racer back style tank.

On Thursday night I experimented with the exact placement of the motif on the tank and stitched the front on first, just with a row of stitching near the neck & near the bottom of the motif, then stitched the back, and had a pretty new top refashion ready for casual Friday at work!!

I have several more of these motifs so I see some other top refashions being done in the future.

I love creating my own fashion and looks: part of the sense of individuality inherited from my very much unique Mum!

Happy restyling!! xx
