The Transforming Tank: Part Four

If you are just tuning into this series, called The Transforming Tank, I started out with a basic tank top that I made with muslin and from there I have been re-making it over and over again by changing only one or two design elements at a time.

Since last time when I added a flounce to the bottom hem, I reverted back to the original tank and added quite a bit of flare in order to create a baby-doll look.

I'm still working with the basic button and fabric loop closure that the original tank had, so I am thinking it is time to mix things up in that area.

I particularly like the fabric that I chose to make this version of the top because the coral colour reminds me vaguely of a dress I saw in the Valentino book I received for Christmas from my parents a few years ago. 


 
Of course the Valentino design is way more sophisticated and couture than my tank, having a hand-painted coral pattern on silk...

Anyway, I am having fun with this project and I hope that you are enjoying the evolution of my little tank as much as I am!
