Hand-Sewn Trapunto and Reverse Applique Tank.

I recently won second place in a Pattern Review contest for my Trapunto Tank. Since then, I have had a few requests for custom tanks and DIY kits.  I have recently completed and mailed this custom tank to a customer. She choose an aqua top layer with a chambray blue bottom layer and white thread an paint. The tank was stitched with reverse applique and trapunto design elements. The bindings on the neck and arms were secured using a herringbone stitch.

I have to admit that I am nervous about this; I hope it exceeds her expectations.

Happy Sewing,
