Summer recap no 3 - a tshirt fix

This is not a refashion, really. It is more of a recipe how to fix all those t-shirts which were mangled in the process of removing those annoying tags.
I have dyed this t shirt only to notice the holes left from removing the tag. To conceal the holes, I added a piece of decorative tape stitching it over to cover the the tears.

Now it looks like an intentional and fun detail!

Hope you find this garment fixation idea useful!

Love how this looks! I've done the same, using a small piece of white lace embroidery on a white t-shirt. In my case I was trying to make it blend in but I love the idea of making it stand out as a feature.

Yep, tending to do similar and it's usually wayyy easier to fix female garments with sort of 'creative additions'. This one would even go with a male-garment. Yet the old proof: collect everything bigger than a fingernail, for perhaps future use. Especially since in my country 'ready-bought-patches' the like tend to be at times more expensive than a new garment ^^. Hence: quality assessment for both items worth while.

LG, Gerlinde
