Tanks with upcycled vintage crochet doily back

A month ago I've bought colorful doilies on local flea market. First I thinked to sell them as they are. But after that one idea crossed my mind: to buy colorful tanks and sew a doily as appliqué on the back. I visited a few teenagers brands' shops and found white, lime green, orange, yellow nad light brown tanks. Here is the result:

After that I thinked that will be great to make a whole crochet back of thetank. After sewing skirts from vintage crochet tableclothes a few pieces remains. Of course, I never throw nothing)) So I had a red and blue piece and big pink rectangular doily. I matched a trim to sew round the neck and scye. 

The last one is with blue hand dyed tablecloth border. 

All of them are absolutely unique!
