Marie Antoinette Princesse Eco Jersey Racerback Tank
This stylish racerback tank top features a design of mine based on a French Fashion Caricature of Marie Antoinette.
- Design is printed on an eco-friendly tank top made from 38% Cotton (6.25% organic) / 50% Polyester (6.25% recycled) / 12% naturally occurring Rayon.
- Low impact fabric-dyed and garment washed for superior softness.
- Tailored from soft Eco-Heather Jersey, this thin, lightweight tank top features a flattering racerback cut, rounded bottom and rolled merrowed hems for a casual look.
- Alternative tanks run a bit slim for a more feminine slimmer fit. Purchase a size larger than usual if you prefer a more relaxed fit. That said there is nice stretch in the fabric.
- Screen Printed meticulously with care in Colorado, USA.
- Brand: Alternative Apparel
- Color: Eco True Red, Eco True Turq and Eco True Purple.
- Fit: True to size. Though I do feel Alternative Apparel does run small for some. Tailored slim with a more feminine fit.
Notes from Tiffini: I find this tank to be snug where it should be but also slouchy in the right places. It is thin but is not see through. Extremely soft and comfortable. Really holds up in the wash well and the colors are vibrant. Excellent for layering. Because of the racerback bra straps will show unless you wear a criss-cross style bra. Product Care: Separate by color, machine wash cold, line or tumble dry low.

Marie Antoinette is a perfect example of the bewildering history of European politics, growth, scandal, and tragedy that many innocents faced who were born into aristocracy and thrown into marriages not of their own choosing at times when they were most certainly not prepared for the challenges they would face.
Born into royalty, and gifted as a bride by her mother, Marie Antoinette led France as Queen for 17 years, (1774-1791). During that time she was cast as both a heroine and personification of the greatness and beauty of France as well as a villain and one of the main actors in the French Revolution. She was involved in many scandals, many of which were true and many of which were nothing more than political power plays and rumors of the day. The phrase "Let them eat cake" is appropriated to her although there is no evidence she actually ever used the phrase. She had a tragic ending to her life when after a 2-day trial she was convicted of several trumped up and fictional charges and executed via guillotine. Her stature in popular culture has produced dozens of biographies, films, songs, plays, opera's and poems.
