Welcome to another week of DIY under $5! This week I tackled a tank top that has been sitting lonely in my closet. I wore it maybe once a year to the lake. I felt bad for the poor thing and decided to spruce it up a bit. Hello cute, feminine, ruffly number perfect for spring.
A couple weeks ago before our girl’s craft weekend I went to Hobby Lobby and stumbled upon some trim remnant bags for 99 cents. These things are gold I tell you! Of course there were some totally weird and hideous bits in there, but there were also some fabulous pieces to be had.
Honestly, when I first pulled out the eyelet ruffles I thought what in the world would I do with those? I have no daughters and I was not sure if a grown woman could pull off eyelet. I guess you can be the judge on that one, but I got the idea to cut it in two and sew it to my pink tank. I am actually quite pleased with how it turned out.
Tank: already had in closet
Eyelet trim: part of 99 cent trim remnant bag
Total cost: 20 cents
