Fans for Carpe Diem Tank Top

The sleeveless view of the Carpe Diem Dress & Tunic lends itself to easily making a short tank top for summer. Carrie crafted this top from quilting cotton with an asian-inspired print of fans and flowers. Instead of finishing it with a facing, as directed in the Carpe Diem instructions, she finished the scoop neckline, armholes and hem with a contrast binding made from scraps of cotton ikat.

For closer shaping, Carrie added 2 vertical “fish eye” darts to the front and back of the top.
