I hope you all have been enjoying Reader Appreciation Week!
I've been working on that pile of t-shirts again and got one done this week (along with a bunch more sewing projects!)
I saw this shirt while in Miami and knew exactly shirt I could do this to!
This shirt had a pretty good sized hole. I was so upset-I'd only worn it a few times! But I thought the ruffles and lace would be perfect to covering it up and adding some flair. I stitch up the hole, so it wouldn't keep growing, then got to work.
I started from measuring the shirt from the right shoulder seem to bottom middle (just a little to the left of the hole.) Using those measurements, I cut two pieces of lace and then added on 6 inches to the length and cut out two pieces of knit fabric that were 2 inches wide. I ruffled the knit fabric.
Then I pinned on one piece of lace, sewed it in place, then pinned on a ruffle and sewed it in place.
Repeat with the remaining lace and ruffle.
And you're done!
I like the way the ruffles and the lace look together.
And that hole?
Can't even tell it was ever there!
