I love recreating my shirts. Like this lace tank, these tanks that are perfect for summer, my anthropologie-inspired tank, or creating dresses from skirts and shirts.
I had these two shirts. The blue one just looked frumpy on me, sort of boring. The salmon colored ribbed tank was starting to fray a bit around the neck. I had some more leftover lace scraps that I had purchased in a lace scrap lot at hobby lobby, and picked out a couple pieces to utilize.
Here is step one, the most important step: Make sure the shirt is RIGHT SIDE OUT before stitching down a six inch section. That's right - major stitch ripping occured on the blue shirt. Ugh! So frustrating when I do that to myself.
Step two: pin down areas of the lace on the shirt in a pattern. The blue shirt was a cascading pattern, the salmon shirt was just around the color.
Step three: Sew. Add accessories if needed, like I did for the salmon shirt. I just twisted the leftover lace into a flower and hand stitched it on with a button.
Step four: Admire ;)
