Blush Silk Tank Refashion

I can’t believe I haven’t shared this refashion yet! I made this tank well over a year ago and then forgot about it completely. I don’t think I even wore it until now. Hard to believe this was once a double layer silk tank and a pair of capri pants. Both were on clearance at …
