Tutorial - Tanks with upcycled vintage crochet doily back

As I wrote before here: Tanks with upcycled vintage crochet doily back I sewn a doily as appliqué on the back of the top. So today I show it step by step so you can make it at home and have a absolutely unique top. You can decorate also t-shirt.
The doily should be neither too small nor too big. Put it in the center of the back and draw  a circle with a chalk. Circle should be smaller than doily about 1 cm/0.4" from every edge, it's necessary for the seam allowance.

Cut out a circle from the back of the top.

Then cuff inside the edge by about 0.7-1 cm/0.3-0.4" and pin the napkin.

Baste it.

After that, sew from the back on the sewing machine with zig-zag stitch with the largest width of the stitch. Zig-zag finish the edge of the top and it is not unknit. Control the sew and cut out superfluous fabric.

Here's the result:

K Novak - I don-t make these doilies, as I wrote in article. I buy them on local flea market, these are vintage doilies.
