DIY::Lace Shirt

Good morning everyone! Look who somehow got back to a normal sleep schedule!
Hope everyone is on a normal and rested sleep schedule too. It's a nice thing. 

I had a guest post over at Searching for Serendipity this past week that I wanted to post up on here too. It's super fun and easy - just how I like DIY's to be. Let me know what you think!

You will need: 
- about one yard of fabric - I used lace for a breezy summer shirt. 
- scissors
- needle and thread or a sewing machine

Take your fabric and fold it in half so that the fold is on the top. 

Now take your fabric and fold again from left to right. The original fold should still be on top with another on the left. 

Cut the corner off where both folds meet. This will be your neck hole. You may want to make it large or small depending on the look you want. 

Unfold your fabric once so that it is still folded on the top. Now you're going to sew the sides leaving room for arm holes. I started sewing about 8 inches from the fold on top towards the open edge on the bottom.

It can be tighter or looser depending on the look you like. Just make sure that if you make it tighter, that the fabric is a little bit stretchy. I made mine pretty loose. 

And you're done! Easy right? 

Hope you loved it! I wear mine all the time :) 

Have a wonderful Memorial Day!

  1. Very creative!

  2. Hi! I just finished this project and it turned out GREAT! Can't wait to wear it over bright tank tops and as a swimsuit cover up. The fabric I used is polyester lace and a little slick, but it's not really a problem. Also, I left the selvedges on because they look a little like a hem :)

  3. So glad everyone likes this!

    And Christina - I would love to see it if you have a picture! Or anyone else that does it!

    Just send it to my email ::
    If I get enough photos, I'll do a post about it :)
