Ann Taylor Loft Knock-Off

Hi, my name is Kim and I love Ann Taylor Loft! What I don't always like is their prices....while checking out their new arrivals I came across this cute tank...
I know....right up my alley, right...I mean really...it has yo-yos on it!!! Since I knew I wouldn't spend $24.50 on a fairly simple tank top...I decided to make a knock off. Target had their tanks on sale for $7 and I have oodles of fabric scraps and you all know I love to make yo-yos...so here it is...
Before

Yo-yos in coordinating colors...made using the largest yo-yo maker by Clover.

I stitched them on through the tank fabric and through the back layer of the yo-yo so you wouldn't see the thread on the yo-yo.

All sewn on. Sorry for the tank being all smashed up. (I was in a hurry this morning).
Hope you like it...now go make your own! It was so quick and easy! Have a great day and don't forget I have something BIG planned for Saturday!!!
Hugs!
Kim

YOU are the woman!!! Love it! I don't make yo-yo's so your top is extra special.
Warmly,

Glad to see that you are still putting those great yo-yos of yours to fabulous use!! How cute. Unfortunately...I have flabby arms, so no tank tops for me! Bet the yo-yos would look cute on a tee, too!

Love your snowy photos, the birds at the feeder and that CUTE Emma! She's a snow dog, even with those short legs!

Our temps are FINALLY gonna warm a bit this weekend. The 40s on Monday! Yah-Hoo!

Have a great weekend! L, dana
