Description

I love to spice up dresses and jeans with long summer vest. In my last visit to Target I found a few very cool and super cheap items. I wanted to show what I did with two T-shirts, I also used a little piece of lace for the back, but you don’t need to use it if you don’t like lace.

I really liked that the T-shirts were very soft and a thin material, thinner than normal cotton T-shirts. They cost me $3.00 each and both were XL. I am a Medium in shirts so I would recommend to use shirts two sizes bigger than what you normally wear so they are long enough and you end up with a pretty and full bottom.

You can see the full blog post I did about this in my personal blog.

    That is a wonderful and smart idea for a t-shirts remake!!! I love how it came out and I love the lace detail too. Your tutorial is great and the pics are well understandable. Great job ;O)
