I made this fun and pretty racer back tank top from McCalls 6359 pattern.
I started this top a few months ago and never completed it. That seems to happen all too often!
I thought about binding the neckline and armholes with some of the silk, but then I though it would be fin to give it a little edge and trim it in leather. I bought a 12 yards of 3/8″ wide light weight double fold lambskin leather trim from Wallace Textiles through eBay. This stuff is really nice! The leather is thin and soft and quite pliable, perfect for a little binding or trim.
I am very happy with this top and can envision it with a colored underling under the lace. I think that will really make the lace stand out. Next time I make it, I will make it a little larger under the armholes and across the chest as it did fit a bit tightly here for me. I think this top could lead to a lot more design ideas….
