Quick Refashion for my Daughter

I asked my daughter if she would like me to alter a t-shirt for our upcoming vacation. She said ‘Uhm, maybe?’ So I sat her down in front of the computer and showed her some Pinterest ideas. She is very decisive and immediately said ‘I want the lace down the back and can you do ‘that’ to the sleeves?’. She also saw a pair of shorts that she loved. Sometimes the hardest part for her is picking out the materials to be used. She only had one choice for the t-shirt (only lace wide enough) but had multiple for the shorts.
Getting ready to sew the lace in.

The t-shirt was a little more involved, but not really any harder then the shorts. I think she picked this t-shirt because she wouldn’t mind it being ruined if she didn’t like how it turned out. I don’t have the before picture, but I think you can ‘picture’ it.
Bow Sleeves

This alterations are mainly just sewing lace down and cutting away fabric, or cutting away fabric and sewing lace down.
Cutting away...

I explain how I did this on my blog, so feel free to jump on over and check it out.
