T-shirt Makeover

I don't know about you, but my summer wardrobe is pretty boring. I usually just buy plain T-shirts and dress it up with jewelry. It's fine, but I wanted a change. I love how J-crew dresses up the common t-shirt, but I'm cheap and really don't want to pay those prices. So when I came across this tutorial I had to try it. It did take awhile, but I absolutely love the result. Plus I found the shirts for $3 a piece so the shirt only cost me $6!

Just pop in a chick flick and you too can make a cute shirt. It doesn't even require a sewing machine and if I pulled it off with horrible hand sewing abilities so can you!

* The color is a very pretty lavendar. My camera doesn't ever capture my crafts well. Maybe someday I will have a nice Canon camera. Until then everyone will just have to put up with my crummy camera and photography skills!


  1. I love it!! I have spent way too much money on shirts from JCrew (got them on sale... but they still cost more than 6 bucks!!) I really want to make some of those! If I don't need a sewing machine (because I don't have one) I think I can do that! Thanks for the idea! :)

  2. Cute shirt! I also love the tunic dress she made for her daughter in that tutorial! Thanks for the link
