lacy shirt (also know as..the mullet shirt)

this was a guest post over at truly lovely! but i thought i would post it here…cause..well..it’s summer. and instead of crafting i’m sitting here eating an ice cream sandwich and watching the bachelorette.

random fact number 678. My best friend in high school was named lacey

so while patrolling through blog land… i came across this tutorial…. and immediatly decided that lace is one of my favortiest things. like chevron. ruffles. pink. chocolate. hot glue. polka dots. just somethings that makes me instantly happy… and i thought i have got to make me one. and justsohappens i had this blue shirt in my take back to the store pile. i just couldn’t justify spending $8 on a plain shirt..when i literally have a drawer full….so i was going to take it back. BUT instead i want to joanns and bought a yard and half of pretty lace….

since it was straight on one side i decided to do two strips…(and that 1 1/2 was perfect.i literally had like 2 inches left)
(so i guess it wasn’t perfect. i yard and 16 inches would have been perfect.)

lined them up..

pinned them on..

(the ends were tucked underneath and sewed so no raw edges were visible from the front!)

and sewed. i sewed along the stright and the curved side (4 times total)

another reason to love lace…you can’t see your mistakes (aka stitches)

that t is on a very uncomfortable part of my bum.

you could also do one BIG lace strip down the middle like THIS one

and fyi..mossimo boyfriend t at target. best shirts ever.
or how about replacing the sleeves with lace like THIS

there is also this tutorial that i will do sooner than later!

and check out these adorable lace belts.

or this beautiful scarf

lace is my new best friend..
