although i loved my plain wine colored t very much, it had shrunk just a bit too much. yeah that’s it, shrunk. so instead of discarding it i decided to add a lil flair to a favorite plain black t. very satisfying
i took the hem of the wine shirt and added it to the inside of the neckline of my black scoop t, going from left of center in the front around and just over the right shoulder. i then embellished that shoulder with little leaves and petals made from the sleeves and a little of the front section of the wine t, which leaves me so many more things to do with the leftovers! and although you can’t see it in either picture, i added a single petal to the left hip of the shirt, sort of like an outside tag, it looks pretty cute all alone down there.
please excuse the horrible photos, my camera fell in a lake with me this summer and i have been relying photobooth and my phone…
two t shirts, thread and scissors
