DIY : Lacy T-shirt
You’ll need a t-shirt ,1/2 yard of stretchy lace fabric, and an hour of your time. This is the t-shirt I’m working on. Look how sad she is :
Measure and cut as below :
I started the pattern about an inch below the armhole because I didn’t want to sew with the sleeves’ seams getting in the way. After you cut out the lace pieces, French seam the sides together using zigzag stitches ( it’s really neater that way ). Then tube the lace over the t-shirt, fold the lace edges under and top stitch ( using the zigzag stitches ) all around. Tidy up the hems by cutting along the lace pattern to give it a scalloped hemline.
Here’s the after pic :

Gorgeous. Disguises curves and ups the femme factor. Will try this. Thanks. Wish the shots were more clear. But, I understand.

Hmmm, if only I hadn’t told The Man just last week to shot me if I said in the near future that I needed more clothes. Can’t think of any existing shirts I could transform this way, but certainly worth keeping in mind for future reference. 😉
LOL, I’m a fabric-holic, if my husband knows how much fabric I buy, he’ll probably shoot me!
Hahahaha…thankfully mine is yet to find my ‘stash’ 🙂
