Summer Sewing - Ribbon Tank

Not all of us can afford to have a designer outfit, but some of us can figure out how the designer technique and make our own spin on it! That's exactly what I did. I came across this cool way of embellishing t-shirts on the Craft Stylish blog. It's inspired by Marc Jacobs' Resort 2010 collection and involves some pretty ribbon detailing.

So I took a tank top that I bought at Old Navy for $6 several months ago and embellished.

What do you think?

Don't ask me why Logan is being all sinister with those pliers! Yikes!

Here's the ribbon all pinned onto the top. Then I spent an hour or so in front of the TV last night sewing it all down.

Now I gotta figure out what to do with baby blue's little sister - mellow yellow. Flowers? Butterflies? Hmmm... I'll let you know when I come up with something fabulous, or you could point me in the direction of something fabulous that you know of already.
