But one thing that I've fallen in love with that I think would be fun to try to make? Those fabulous J Crew tees, with the fun ruffles or rosettes! I can't find exactly what I have in mind, but something like these...
Oooh, here's some a bit closer to what I've got in mind, courtesy of Anthro!
I found the tank I want to experiment with --- just a simple white tank, that's gathered just above the bust --- not like smocking, and not like pleating... I don't quite know how to describe it. But I've got all kinds of tulle + satin to play with, plus some tan jersey material... I know, this could possibly get ugly. But for just $4 (plus the cost of the accessory fabrics, but I already had those laying around), how could I not want to try my hand at this? (Those top two J Crew tanks, for example: $42!)
Well, I promise to share the results -- even (and perhaps especially!) if this is one of those times where it would totally be worth it to shell out the cash :D
Cross your fingers for me!
