today i have another sweet little re-fashion diy for you, this super cute lace inset t-shirt.
here is what you'll need:
t-shirt of your choice
piece of new or vintage lace the length of your shirt
aleene's stop fraying
position the lace in the middle of the back of the shirt. pin it.
sew down both sides with a regular straight stitch making sure to follow the very outside edge of the lace. take your time and do it slowly. you don't have to be a pro at sewing to be able to do this :)
sew across the top as well and then turn the shirt inside out. cut out the rectangle between your sewn lines, leaving about 1/2" to 3/4". this step is voluntary. i did it because i wanted to be extra safe. t-shirt fabric doesn't usually fray so if this is too much work for you just skip this step.
now fold that fabric over and pin it again.
sew down both sides again making sure to stay on the very edge of the fabric. that way you will sew through the lace on the other side again which will give double hold. if you're not on the very outside edge your white line will show on the dark shirt fabric, so be careful and check once in a while.
lastly i also sewed a zig-zag stitch along the bottom edge of the lace. since you cut it there the edge is now unfinished and may start to unravel over time. i also used aleene's stop fraying on both of the unfinished edges of the lace. now turn your shirt inside out again.
you're done :)
you just turned an old boring t-shirt into a sweet little lace shirt. this took me about an hour to do, start to finish. if you make one i would love to see it sometime.
