Now that summer is officially here, at least in the northern hemisphere, I think that most of us begin to think about cool, comfortable clothing. So last week, for our Monday Morning Inspiration post, I shared a number of t-shirt ideas that I've collected and gave you the opportunity to share some of your work. I had hoped for a number of entries and lots of ideas, but only 3 shared their work. But the 3 who did shared some great ideas.
First up, from Pauline is a Rachel Roy knockoff that she did. Love the combination of the lace and print.
From Amy is her Boho t-shirt refashion. The addition of the prints really takes a t-shirt from boring to fabulous.
Ernie K Designs also shared a top that she made. Sadly, I couldn't copy the picture from Instagram, but you can see it HERE.
So many of you liked the addition of the lace on the piece below.
I like the idea of doing a cut out design and adding the lace to the shoulders and sleeves.
This is a great idea for making a basic cami extra special.
For other t-shirt ideas, I really like the addition of the fabric insets in the examples below.
The bow could be tied a little neater, but what a fun idea.
Here are a couple more embellishment ideas that will make a simple tank really pop.
It looks like a vintage tablecloth was added to the hem of this tank. Really cute.
I came across this top and it reminded me of a top that I did for Sleeves on Saturdays. I like the strips that are pieced together to form the sleeves.
Below is the top that I made. The sleeves were crocheted to the bodice. You can see the post HERE.
Do you have a concert tee, or a tee from a vacation that shrunk, but you just can't part with it? Add an inset, and extend the length with coordinating and contrasting fabrics.
Here's a vacation t-shirt that I purchased and couldn't bear to part with. I turned it into a skirt! You can see the post HERE.
