Crochet FO: lace-trimmed top

I found a lovely tank top at the thrift store:

I like the intricate white paisley, it's a lovely lightweight cotton (perfect for our weather), and the cut is perfect. Except . . . it was a little low in front.
But then I thought: I crochet! I can fix that.
So I sewed a line of thread to the inside of the neckline in a running stitch and then crocheted a thick white trim directly onto the shirt. Here's the result:

I'm pretty happy with the result. I'm seeing crochet-trimmed items all over the place these days, and I get a bit of a kick out of the fact that I can do that style of embellishment just with what I have to hand.
Peace of Christ to you,
Jessica Snell
