Ostrich Embellishment

As it looks like summer is fast approaching, it's time for a quick refashion.  Take one nubby fringed tank:
Pink Calico: Fringed Tank

Some ostrich trim and 99 cent thread:
Pink Calico: ostrich trim

Pink Calico: Thread Cone

Sew by hand, et voila!
Pink Calico: Fringed Tank After

I wasn't sure if I would need more trim, so soaked it to see how it would hang after a wash:

Project Post-mortem:

  • Perhaps add additional trim just at the top of the shoulders
  • and maybe one layer at the back of the neck
Hopefully we will have some warm sunny days so I can wear this!
