Just Add Lace! (The Jackie Edition)

I am so glad I am finally able to do another post! I have been without a way to load pictures to my computer for a while now & we finally fixed the problem! Woo hoo!
ANYWAYS, I took some of Nikki's advice from this post & decided to do a shirt makeover. I purchased this shirt from Target for $4.98 (couldn't resist the amazing deal), but wasn't too thrilled about the front of it. It had some strips of fabric sewn to the front & I didn't really like the raw edges. So, I found some half-off trim from Hobby Lobby & went to work!


{The shirt & the not-so-lovable front.}
Nothing too special about it at first. Just a regular polka dot shirt.


So to make it a little cuter, I did this!!!


{Please ignore the awkward chest pictures. I was without a tripod or husband at the moment, so I had to take the pictures myself. I'll post some better pictures later.}

I was very pleased with the results! Lace & trim can make a huge difference. This is definitely a trick that I will be using a lot!

The shirt look amazing after you applied the lace, I have to admit that adding some little details like this lace makes everything look better; it’s a great way to redo some of the article in one’s wardrobe. Your blog is awesome by the way and I am a new follower! Hope you will like my blog and follow back!
