Today’s tee actually started out as two different shirts.
First, there was this one:
We’re looking at a Rue 21 (Groan) top that’s pilled out and not quite so white anymore. This is the back view.
Then, there was this one:
This is a men’s size medium GAP tee that, while plain, is ever-so comfy and soft!
It was time to combine the best of both worlds to make one awesome sauce tee for my casual day off! 🙂
I carefully snipped off that nice back detail from the white top, as it was the only part that was actually usable.
I took the doily thing and pinned it to the burgundy tee.
As you can see, I’ve pinned everything except the bottom part. That’s because I’m going to gather it later. 🙂
Next, I sewed everything except the bottom part down.
This was a bit tricky, and the doily thing wasn’t that easy to work with, but I managed. 🙂
I trimmed the burgundy material away from the doily thing, and began gathering and pinning the bottom part.
I stitched that part down as well.
I still wasn’t completely content with my new tee, so I trimmed a bit off the sleeves and the neckline. Ahhhhhh! That was mucho bettero!
I tossed my tee over my bikini just in time to head over the water park with my pal, Heather! 🙂
So, the tee is big on me, but I realllly wanted a nice, comfy, oversized tee to wear for my day off. 🙂 I’ve been seeing lots of girls in oversized tees, and was happy to jump on the bandwagon!
