It was time for me yesterday to refresh two very old T-shirts (I got them more than 20 years ago, but they are of excellent quality). I wore them a lot but I have been bored with them and moreover they have been shortened after so many years. Therefore, I bought two meters of lace for the yellow T-shirt (width 20 cm) and half meter of the ivory one (width 1.40 m)
I did not want to make both T-shirts identical, therefore what I had done with the ivory T-shirt, was only partially repeated for the yellow one. I started with the existing hem and the lace as I did above but since I needed the excess fabric for the neckline I did not leave it as I did for the ivory one around the hem. I cut the lace without sewing it at the side. I took all the lace left, around the neckline starting from one shoulder seam. I sewed the lace all around, leaving the excess lace at the height of the other shoulder seam. Now I can make a loose tie and there it is my new blouse. Total cost 2 Euros.
