My remake project

I have to admit that I'm kind of proud of myself for doing this.

Step 1: I never wore this shirt. It's darling; I totally love it, but I never wore it because it was too big. I'm a pretty practical person, so I made it into something I would use. I decided to make a necklace out of the flowery/ lacy part.

BEFORE:
The culprit

Closeup x 2.

DURING:
I was trying to figure out how I was going to make it a necklace and tie the two ends together... I simply cut the hem of the shirt off, cut it in two pieces, hemmed the edges, and sewed those onto the lace part. Voila. A necklace. I may or may not have been kind of freaking out at this point wondering if what I was seeing in my head was really going to pan out.  

It did...

AFTER:
[I feel only slightly cheesy for using myself as a model... I'm not use to that yet.]

It adds a little bit of feminine fun to an outfit, doesn't it? 

[Sorry for the awkward close up shot of my chest. Yes, awkward.]




Yay! Kind of fun! Go find something you don't use, and turn it into something you can use!




Happy almost New Year... and don't forget to enter my giveaway by January 1!
