DIY dipped hem tank top – take 2

Being such a quick and satisfying project, I decided to hack up another old vest and give it the DIY dipped hem tank top treatment! I bought this top purely for the print – LOVE the Aztec print! – it was the only one left in a massive size and as it turned out, I only ever wore it in bed. So as well as giving it a new lease of life in the form of a crop top, I also used up the scraps left over to make a matching headband (which I actually ended up wearing as a belt as headbands just don’t suit me!).

Construction wise, I did it exactly the same way as the last dipped hem tank, but this time I saved the left over panel to make the headband/belt.

I wore: dipped hem tank top; matching belt; DIY embellished sunglasses; red pencil skirt made by Elisalex
