Lace Trimmed Tshirt Refashion…
August 14, 2011
OK…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 t-shirt 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!!!
I simply got a navy, scoop neck t-shirt ( mine came from Wal-Mart) and some sweet white eyelet lace ( this came from Hobby Lobby)….
Then 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!!)
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!
