Three days. That's how long I had my latest migraine. Ugh. Certainly puts a damper on being creative, I'll tell you.
Still working on the parfait t-shirt - that one should definitely be finished by tomorrow. I was just sitting here at the computer and glanced over at another shirt that was gifted to me by a friend for makeover purposes - all of a sudden I had a flash of inspiration - and I knew I could knock this one out pretty quick.
The Before - a black and white plaid shirt, size 1x, shirred in the front with elastic thread:
|LOL! My camera does NOT like this black and white print!|
|Hmm...this looks promising.|
|Going to need quite a bit taken in on the sides.|
|Taking some darts in the back to make it more fitted.|
|And off comes the button plackets and the collar.|
|Looking better already!|
Trimmed about three inches off the bottom of the shirt, and about the same on both cuffs. Then it's time for new hems!
|Sewing it down.|
|Did a little creative cutting & stitching,|
and it became ties for the front & side.
|Remember the three inches I cut |
off the bottom of the shirt?
|Add some lace I bought at the Assistance League Store for a whole dollar, and voila! A new shirt!|
And in case you were wondering, the Sewing Assistant was there to help every step of the way:
|What? Pretty white danglies not for me?|
