Refashion It! Tshirt Refashion with Lace

Yes – I’m still there! In case you’ve wondered whether I’ve got the blogging blues – nope, I don’t. I’d love to blog more at the moment, but unfortunately I can’t. Life’s quite stressful at the moment and I’m basically studying for finals and writing on my dissertation non-stop.

Nevertheless, I try to sew a seam here and there whenever I’ve earned me some sewing time after days of studying. Not enough though for finishing the next dress for my 27 Dresses Challenge. The fabric is all cut out and waiting for me to return to my sewing machine in a few weeks time.

In the meantime I’ve done a quick and simple tshirt refashion with a shirt the boyfriend just brought me from a recent trip to Warsaw (yes, he did know before buying it that the first thing I’d do is cut it apart!)

Due to the lack of writing time at the moment – let the pictures speak for themselves:

Don’t forget to think of the seam allowance before cutting of the sides. Add seam allowance to the lace part as well.

Start setting in the lace at the sleeves. Use a straight stretch stitch.tshirt refashion with lace insert by thisblogisnotforyou.com

Topstitch approximately 0.5cm next to the seam to secure your seam allowance in place and prevent it from being seen through the lace. When topstitching, don’t backstitch. Instead, use a needle to pull the top thread through the fabric, then fasten with knots.tshirt refashion with lace insert by thisblogisnotforyou.com

Done! 🙂tshirt refashion with lace insert by thisblogisnotforyou.comtshirt refashion with lace insert by thisblogisnotforyou.com

I think it really makes this shirt looking a bit more femine. Can’t wait for some hot summer days!

  1. I love this idea! It’s darling, plus it’d work for some tshirts that are a tad too tight for my post-baby top 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing! Coming from Two Girls and a Party

  2. Awesome. I too have some shirts that are a little tight that I do not want to get rid of… your a shirtsaver! 🙂 Good luck with your studies, I look forward to more of your great ideas. 🙂

  3. Love this! So so cute and a shirt saver! Unfortunately, I’m not a sewer….any chance this could be done without sewing, possibly with fabric glue? Probably a silly question but I have to ask!
