I recently clicked on one of those ads for styling services (eg. StyleBox, Gwynnie Bee) because I was in a creative rut. I have a ridiculous pile of clothes begging to be refashioned, and every time I looked at it I had.....nothing. Zero ideas. :(
As luck would have it, I saw something on the styling service site that jumped out to me and screamed "You can make something like this!"
|Behold, the very inspiring tie-dyed cold shoulder t-shirt!|
|As a peasant shirt, it fit all wrong, but the colors were right!|
Using my trusty seam ripper, I removed all of the elastic thread that was used to gather the neckline and waist. Then I took some scraps of black fabric that were left over from a previous project and sewed them into tubes to use as straps.
It's not an exact replica of the inspiration shirt, but it's pretty darn cute and super comfortable, especially in the miserable heat and humidity that have settled into the mid-west.
Please pardon the slightly blurry cell phone pics. My usual refashion camera had a dead battery and I was impatient!
