Anthro Esplanade Tanktop

So I'm really working on my summer wardrobe now.. even if the British weather is now against me and is cold n wet again... this time I've had a go at making an anthro knockoff esplanade halter top using Jessica's tutorial over at Happy Together


Here's mine:

Not bad for a cheapy Primark tanktop and scrap silky fabric from the inside of an old dress!



Wish I'd have had a working sewing machine when I started this... I cut and hand stitched the reshaping of the top and attaching the main sily section for the strap.. perhaps I need this in a couple of different colours now too....

Very cute! Even more impressive that you hand stitched it, my hand stitching is appalling so I'm always in awe of people who can do it, y'know, neatly! ;)

Good work. Brave girl sewing the old fashioned way, without a machine!

So adorable! I love it! And I can't believe you hand stitched it . . . that is dedication--I would have given up after just a few stitches. It looks great on you! I'm a new follower!
