Lace Trimmed Top

   I've got a lot of plain white strappy tops and some are getting pretty old, like this one. So I decided to add something to it to bring it back to life.
   Before adding the trim I soaked the whole thing in bleach as it was a bit grubby and had some random stains. It worked a treat.

   I sewed this lovely turquoise lace trim across the top of the shirt. I tucked the trim under the edge on the top and sewed along the existing stitch line to make it as neat as possible.

   I added the trim along the bottom of the shirt because it's a bit short so I thought the trim would add some extra length.

   I hand sewed the whole thing so I could hide the stitching, and I needed an excuse to catch up on episodes of Neighbours.

What do you think?

  1. Ah that looks great! That's a really neat idea for an old tank top.
