Wardrobe Rehab Part V.....

Another boring shirt!! (Yes I do seem to have many of those.) It nearly made a trip to the Good Will this morning when I realized I still had some old blue toile fabric that would compliment it beautifully.
I just cut a slit right down the middle. (Put it on first and mark a spot so that you do not accidentally give yourself a plunging neckline. (Unless of course you are into that sort of thing,...in which case,...be my guest.:)) I don't even bother to finish off the edges since stretch cotton does not tend to fray. Then I made three cute-est posies following the fabulous instructions found here. (Blurry photo warning,........dude I just don't know what is wrong with my photographer.)
I sewed them on. (I probably could have even used liquid stitch, but I usually choose to sew.) And,........VOILA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Shirt not as boring. I still think I will try to come up with something frilly and a bit clown-esq for the bottom. (Just wouldn't be like me to stop while I'm ahead.;))

The best thing about these posies is that they look even better for the wear after they have been washed a bit. They get all frumped up and full of frayed character. YAY!!! So go find a boring shirt and 'Un-Boring' it!!
