Lace Necklace Shirt

I have a confession...I don't have a style. I really don't. One day I'm all black nail polish and dark eyeliner and the next I'm wearing all pink, lace, and pearls. Sometimes I mix the two, which was the case today.


Ever seen these "necklace" shirts? I think they are really trendy (I have one with a shoe necklace printed on it :D). The style is a bit "punky" and I wanted it to be a little more girly. Enter:

Lace! Then add...

And a $1 t-shirt from the thrift store. This will equal...



One fabulous new shirt! It's only basted right now (sewing machine is still packed) so it's not yet wearable, but I really like it. I left the lace free so it could actually feel like a necklace and added the lace roses to make it even more girly. I LOVE the lace roses.

Aren't they so gorgeous?? I wanted to sew them all over the shirt but I thought that might be a bit much. :) Since the lace and the shirt were both from the thrift store I managed to make the shirt for just a little over a dollar, what a bargain!

 I'm really liking the way it turned out. I can't wait until I machine sew it in place so I can actually wear it!
