I cut out a piece of the shirt and sewed on the white elastic lace, which i cut out of an old shirt from my childhood which is now too small. it is so easy, cheap and creative for you to design new cool pieces from your old clothes which you do not like any more or which are too small! then i tied a bow (i love bows, on so many clothes i sewed them!) and sewed it on. you can use any stripes, i used one from a birthday present! at the end i sewed on the golden button which make the design look more expensive.

Material Notes

cotton, white elastic lace, champagner colored stripe, golden buttons




Garment Type
Evening Wear

    Aw it’s adorable – and I agree with ruudee81, it def. does look like something from Gossip Girl! Kudos!
