Bikini top doily revamp

I had this white bikini top that was always a little too sheer for my liking so I thought of a great and easy way to make it both extra special and to give myself a little more coverage. Happy summer!
 The first photo shows the original top. I found two doilies the perfect size (this particular type were meant to go on the arms of fancy chairs, y'know, in the olden days. Vintage doilies are easy to find on ebay and at thrift/antique stores. I the second photo you can see how I carefully pinned the doilies along the edge of the existing top. Next I sewed them on using cotton thread and a zig zag stitch. Summertime sass! Viola!
