Our favorite retro trim adds charm and texture to a plain tank dress. The technique can spiff up a tee as well.

You will need:
Chalk or fabric pen
Crewneck tank dress
3 1?2 yards of pom-pom trim in various colors
Fabric glue (we used Fabri-Tac)

Step 1

1. With the chalk or the fabric pen, mark a line across the tank from armhole to armhole (ours is about 1 1/2 inches above the underarm seam). Snipping between pom-poms, cut a length of trim as long as this line.

Step 2

2. Run a bead of fabric glue along the trim tape. Firmly press the trim onto the tank at the marked line. Be sure to glue down the ends so that the edges won't fray.

3. Measure and cut another length of trim to lie 1/4 inch above the first, then glue it in place. Repeat, varying colors, until you've applied the desired amount of trim.
