Upcycled t-shirt!


Now I have another up cycled project to show you. Which would be great for those kids who needs a back to school shirt!

I found this t shirt for $5.00 at Target (pronounced Targhay for those of you who like the french pronunciation.)
It was a little plain and needed something to give it some wow!
I had some white cotton scraps of fabric (actually it was the bottom of a dust ruffle that I no longer needed.)
I made some rolled flowers of different sizes.

I then attached them with a needle and thread, I found this was the easiest and would withstand washing better.
I then started with the largest flower in the middle and graduated sizes to the top.
It made the neckline say wow!  and I loved how it turned out.
I combined it with a cute jacket that believe it or not I found at one of my favorite stores.
(remember Divine Inspirations, yup, that's where I got it!)

Added a belt to the waist and I am thinking a cute pink flower on the lapel would perfectly finish this outfit! What do you think? Total for the outfit including the jacket $10.00!!

Hi Donene,
Love what you did to that t-shirt girl, it looks
fabulous off and on you!!
What a great idea, and just so cute. I love t's
with pretty stuff at the neck line cause it just dresses them up so.
hope you are having a great day,
blessings, Nellie

Super cute! I've seen a lot of these shirt redo's floating around in blog land. I'm going to try one, one day.

Penny said...

Love the tshirt and would love to find that jacket. Definitely in the refashioning mode.

Mark and Ashlie said...

What a beautiful shirt! Thanks for sharing this with Sister Sister Sunday! You have such fun ideas!

Maggie said...

Love that shirt!!!

It came out so cute.

Katie said...

I absolutely LOVE this!!! Found you on the CSI Project and I'd love if you came and linked this up at Sew Woodsy!

Sibylle said...

looks really nice!

Jill said...

Such a pretty top! I like how you used a top that already had the gathers at the neckline... makes everything more dressy than your basic t-shirt.

Jill said...

Cute and wonderfully simple! I love it!

I would love if you came and linked this project to my clothes upcycling page. It has a long term linky, so your project would stay there for more than just the week of a usual linky. We have over 60 projects linked up now – some fantastic ideas – and this month I’m upcycling lots of clothes and trying to feature lots of the links too!
Do come and take a look!

Mandy @ thetinkersmuse said...

ahhhh isn't it amazing how adding such a simply beautiful thing like rosettes can so alter a plain tee?

Katie said...

LOVE this upcylced shirt. I've yet to do this to any of my shirts; however, because of your project I've started pulling some shirts in my closet that I can repurpose and make into a cute new summer top! Thank you so much for linking up to Sew Woodsy last week. I just wanted to let you know that I featured your shirt today. Please make sure you grab a featured button and link up any new projects you've been working on!
