"The Holes" syndrom

_MG_7308Many of my tee shirts have three little tiny holes right around my bellybutton area. Does anyone else have this problem?

This dark blue tee was one of my favorites, but it had “THE HOLES” syndrome.  The thrifted skirt was a couple sizes too big, so I took that in along one of the side seams.  I cut about 6 inches off the bottom of the tee shirt and then sewed it onto the skirt.

It’s not a pretty sewing job , but I’m happy with how it turned out!

This outfit looks like a tucked in shirt with a skirt, but it’s actually one dress.  It hangs on my body just right and doesn’t twist around on me during the day.

That’s one way to deal with “The Holes” !

Come visit The Little Moments to read about my theory of where those little holes come from!

:) love the skirt portion of this dress. Here's hoping the (presumably) woven fabric is immune to The Holes

I have the same problem with the holes in my shirts. I found out this are made by the button of the Jeans. Now i used just jeggings and the problem is solved... no more holes in my t shirts. :)

A particular and favorite belt was,the culprit :-(

I do a little tuck in the front with my t-shirts, and that's where my holes come from! Great way to combine two pieces that weren't working as they were! Such a cute dress :)
