Tutorial:Easy Lace Embellished Tank top
Seriously this is getting ready to be one of the easiest/quickest shirt make-over's you have ever done!! Yeah for quick!! I think this took me a total of 15 minuets (changing the bobbin took the longest..dang)! This is perfect to use on one of those shirts where the neckline is just slightly and uncomfortably to low, or when you like the layered look but not when it's 105 outside!!
Supplies you'll need:
*Small section of wide cotton lace
*Tank-top or shirt to make-over
*and the usual supplies a sewing machine or needle and thread, pins, and scissors.
Flip shirt inside out and measure and trim enough lace to reach across the opening of your shirt. Pin lace in place and get ready to sew! Use a zig-zag stitch being careful not to stretch your top as you go to prevent puckering and waves in your finished shirt. If your worried about stretching your top you can starch your shirt before you sew to make things go a little smoother:)
Trim lace and your finished!!! Enjoy your new shirt:)
P.S I'm loving my new crocheted necklaces with this shirt!!:)
