T-Shirt Refashion

Last week I purchased this simple gray Tee at Forever 21 for $2.

I purchased it knowing that I wanted to do something fun with it.

The other night when I sat down to start playing around with the top,
I remembered the lace collar I had left over from my

So I got it out.

Cut it in half. 

Then I played around with it, pinning it and designing until I came up with something I liked.

Finally, I knew what I wanted to do.

I chose a contrasting yellow thread to add an extra pop
and sat down to sew.

This is what I ended up with.
Close ups of flower and contrasting thread

For some reason I feel like this photo shows how short I really am.

I am quite pleased with this refashion.

One thing that I especially love is that when the tee gets old, 
as it inevitably will,
I will be able to once again salvage the lace.

It's so awesome when things can be reused over and over.
