just add lace!

So it starts with a plain shirt that fits good!
this is a tshirt that I've had in my drawer for over a year..but I like the fit.
then you add lace! I love it! I want one in every color! I got the idea from  icandy handmade
She made this one in pink! I want to make another one in pink, yellow, turqoise ...etc.

I don't know how to fix that crease without unpicking the whole thing? I guess you would probably only see it in a picture because I'm standing still? I think I can live with it.
So I found the lace at Hancocks Fabric store for $1.25/yard and I needed a yard and a half. 
I definitely recommend using spray adhesive when putting it on your shirt. I don't know how I did it just by pinning it...well that is probably why I got that crease in my shirt.  So what I'm saying is...don't pin the lace to the top....use spray adhesive!  (Go to icandy handmade for the tutorial)
So here we are! Such a simple way to spruce up a shirt!
Now I want to go out and get more! I want one in every color!
Hope this makes you want to make one too! Happy Sewing!
