This one-of-a-kind knit top is one I created using my up-cycle sewing skills starting with a cotton Elvis T-shirt with the Elvis face formed from the silver paillettes. I added the black nylon mesh collar and hemline and and black/white stripe knit trim to create the piece you see. To create the top, I added black fabric with sparkles at the left front and back hoke, black knit fabric for the lower back, and a lovely black and silver metallic fabric for the sleeves.
