1. Men’s Shirt To Lace Top Refashion
Upgrade an old men’s shirt to a pretty lace top. Start by removing the sleeves of the shirt, and cutting away the shoulder flaps and the collar. Then, stitch the seams of the armhole edges. From there, you can then attach your lace detail.
2. Painted Galaxy Tee
Have fun painting a galaxy tee by choosing colors with the help of a color wheel. Before you grab your paintbrush, remember to place a piece of cardboard inside the shirt. Also, don’t be afraid to use a variety of different paint styles in your artwork, such as dabbing, twisting, and smearing. If you’d like to add stars, simply place a bit of paint on your toothbrush and flick the bristles with your fingers.
3. Laced Up Sleeves Top
This laced up top shows off a bit more skin without being too overbearing. When inserting the string or ribbon through the grommets, be careful not to tug too tight. Doing so could scrunch the sleeves together.
4. Varsity Tee
The secret to making this varsity tee is painter’s tape. Simply line strips of it on the sleeve and along the bottom of the shirt. Then, place a piece of cardboard inside the top, before you begin painting in between the tape strips. If you’d like to add numbers, you can do so using the tape-and-paint method or by simply attaching iron-on numbers.
5. Cozy Square Top
Add a little structure to your DIY cozy square top by cuffing the sleeves once or twice. It’s a subtle detail, but it’ll add a polished feel to a casual outfit.
6. Macrame Tank Top
Crazy about macrame? Then this is the project for you. By the way, the trick to getting the knots right is by remembering to pair one strand with a neighboring strand. Doing so allows for a more crisscross-like pattern.
7. Tie Up Asymmetrical Top
This tie up asymmetrical top allows you to have the best fit because of its side ties. Just be careful not to leave the strands too long, as they can look a bit messy.
8. Tee To Lace Tank Refashion
I’ve found it’s much better to attach the lace detailing on the collar first before cutting the preferred neckline. That way, if you decide midway you’d prefer a change, you can do so without feeling restricted from the remaining fabric of the tee.
9. Boat Neck Blouse
I recommend using a thin and stretchy fabric for this boat neck blouse. That being said, I’d definitely avoid using cotton for this piece of DIY clothing.
10. Back Bow Tee
Begin by cutting out the neckline and by making about 4 snips on the back of the shirt. Once you’re done, cut small pieces of your lace ribbon. Then, wrap and sew the ribbon around each part of the shirt’s back.
