I’ve been getting lots of old clothes from my mom, and this white cotton tshirt is one of them. She never wore it because it was small for her… but was big for me.
So I cut off the sleeves and neckline, tied elastic bands through seam allowances.
Also, I read this beautiful book (pic #7) on white embroidery and was so eager to try it. The finished work proudly lies in the
center :-) I tried to place the other laces and buttons randomly but somehow coherently, at the same time. I love the shirt except for the warning it gives me to “work out around my upper arm” every time I wear it… ;-P
