I don’t wear too many t-shirts. They’re normally a Saturday affair; jeans and a t-shirt thrown on to run some errands. And I guess I don’t wear them too much because they feel “boxy” and the neck normally feels too high for me.
But a couple weeks ago, I had a problem. Because a t-shirt is all I could find to wear.
We were headed to the Tampa Bay Rays game (baseball) and my hubby had a nice hat to wear, so I was on the hunt for a cute women’s “blingy” shirt to wear (in support of the team, of course!) But none could be found! I was a little disappointed, and I didn’t have time to “bling out” a shirt like I’ve done in the past, so I decided to do something different.
Here’s the t-shirt I bought:
Just big and boxy and plain with no imagination at all. I mean, it was a fine shirt (on clearance at Walmart!) but it wasn’t exactly what I wanted.
Sooo…I sliced off the sleeves, cut in a v-neckline and took a few inches off the bottom. All I needed was my handy dandy fabric scissors. Then I washed it in HOT water (to shrink it) and dried it multiple times (to allow the fabric to “roll” a bit on the edges that I had cut…and…
Isn’t that better?! It felt MUCH more feminine – and I’m SUCH a girly-girl, I NEED feminine! I added a “team colors” headband, some jewelry and jeans and white jewel-studded flip flops, and I was good to go!
Now, let it be known that I have countless ideas for modifying t-shirts, and I do it all the time, but I was at a point with this one where I didn’t HAVE any time to work wonders on it. However, I still think it’s better than it was!
What about you? Are you a t-shirt wearer? Or do you “dress them up” a bit? What’s your favorite way to dress one up?
