monday night DIY

4 Oct

Since Gossip Girl was POSTPONED to due the local CW broadcasting the Dolphins game (annoying) I decided to make the most of the downtime and hit JoAnn fabrics. I picked up some lace trim to transform a boring crewneck t shirt into something new…

Start by cutting the crewneck at the shoulder seam, diagonally to just below the opposite sleeve. This will give you the “one-shoulder” style that is so flattering. Then, use pins to place the lace where you will eventually (hand)sew it onto the shirt.

You should be sewing the lace on with short, tight swipes of the needle. You dont want it to be loose or hang funny, so make sure it is on securely.

After about half an hour, voila! The neck is done. I had extra ribbon so I did the sleeve as well, which literally took a matter of minutes.

Ta-da! Here is my new, one of a kind shirt. Made from a simple and boring fitted t shirt! I plan on wearing this tucked in to a skirt, otherwise you could comtemplace trimming the bottom as well. Happy sewing!
