Refashion #7 Lace t-shirt and a giveaway!

On our recent Disneyland trip we stopped at an outlet mall in Nevada. I found this shirt at Charlotte-Russe for $3. While I bought two yellow shirts to make a tone on tone refashion (coming up later) I only bought one in this color so I could embellish it with something else. I began by cutting a 20 inch strip of lace from a bolt I had. I cut it in half lengthwise because it was pretty wide.

I used my sewing machine to stitch down the edge of the lace. I pulled the bottom thread and gathered the lace to create a flower. (It helps to wrap it around your finger).

I cut the second half of the lace in half again to make 2 smaller peices. One is scalloped, the other is straight, which creates two different flowers.

I used the same method to make 2 smaller flowers.

Next, I cut small strips of ribbon and folded them as shown above.

I hand sewed the flower and the ribbon to one side of the neckline of the shirt. (I didn't even glue!)

Ta da! It is a little "floofy" but I think it's cute.

I wore it with this fabulous gold flower necklace, but it slipped under the shirt for the picture so you can't see it. I am also wearing skinny jeans and gold flats. I think it makes a cute outfit.

Like the look but don't want to make the flowers yourself? Well, you are in luck! You have two ways to obtain a lace flower pin you can add to t-shirts, cardigans, scarves, etc.
