From Good to Better

This tank top is another item of clothing that I recently updated. I've been on a alterations kick lately. I really should be taking before and after pictures, but once I get an idea in my mind, I don't even pause to think about it. Shame on me.

Anyway, this tank top had a 90s surfer feel before I altered it a bit. The neckline had two buttons and was a little too high for my taste. All I did was tuck it in and sew it down to create a faux v-neck. It only took about 10 minutes and now this top seems so much more versatile. It's perfect for the summer, not to mention that I love the print.


  1. It's so funny you say that, I've been on an alterations kick, too, but it's been to take the straps of tank tops up 1/2-1" so I don't expose my bra. 
    Aaanyway, I love this balance of wacky print and simple, chic, black basics. You're so good at this type of look!
