Lace Trimmed Tshirt Refashion

 I have always enjoyed making my own clothes. Just ask my mom who, bless her heart, had to combine 2 patterns for my senior prom dress. She is the best! She taught me how to sew at a young age, and by high school I could whip out a skirt or shorts. I just love putting my personal touch on my clothes.

So…let’s be super honest here…I am not one of those young  20 somethin’ girls. I have had the, umm, “big” , birthday!! I am past the point of certain clothing options….

Anyway, I always love it when I find something that I love and can be worn no matter what age you are and is not tiny tiny or really skimpy! This lace trimmed tshirt refashion over at Sweet Verbena is just fabulous!!

 So I decided to make something for myself…shocking I know! My daughter asked me..”Mom, who are you making that for?” and I answered, “ME!”, to which she replied, “HUH??”

Anyway, it turned out soooo cute!!!

Here are the supplies you need to create your own Lace Trimmed Tshirt:

One Scoop Neck Tshirt { mine was navy and came from Wal-Mart }

Sewing Machine and Thread

I sewed the eyelet onto the t-shirt using a zig-zag stitch…(a little tip: put the shirt on before you sew to make sure you have the eyelet lined up in the middle!!) Simply pin it down the middle to hold it in place while you sew a zig-zag stitch on each side of the eyelet lace.

I love the way it turned out and dresses up a really inexpensive t-shirt…it will be so cute with my white jeans when it is not over 100 degrees outside!!!

If you knew how much I HATE having my picture taken, you could truly appreciate the fact that I was able to put my photo here!! :) 

I would love to do this out of embroidered, wide ribbon for the fall on a long sleeve t-shirt! I think that would look great with a pair of comfy jeans!

We loved how this turned out so much, we used the same concept when  we created this Lace Embellished Tote  for a perfect and quick gift idea…

Sometimes just adding a little touch of an embellishment like lace can dress up something so simple and pain. The possibilities are endless for dressing up a tshirt, tote, or onesie!

    I love that shirt. It is simple yet so feminine and pretty. I am with you sista on the age thing and I think I am going to have to make myself one as well!

    This looks so classic & current at the same time – that made more sense in my head =). I definitely think I’ll make a long sleeve one for myself. Thanks for the inspiration.

    First off in my opinion you should have no reason for hating to have your picture taken, you are all that an a bag of chips. While this embellished t-shirt isn’t my style I do have two people who would love it for the appearance and for it being a gift from the heart. You just helped me cross them off my what to do/get them for Christmas. Thank you for your help and inspiration. Have a great day!
