DIY: Lace Front T-Shirt (Mint Green and Cobalt)

Hi Everyone! 
This DIY Lace T-shirt cost less than $4 ($400 JAD) to make and took a little over an hour because I used my hand to sew. It would be much quicker and neater if you used a sewing machine, the key is to cut neatly and use matching thread. Wear it with jeans, jeggings, a maxi skirt, with a work suit or with linen pants for a weekend get away.

I paired it with the cobalt blue jeggings for a bright contrast, and because it was the only pants that fit me now. :/




SUPPLIES:

Round neck cotton T-shirt 
1 yard Stretch lace fabric in matching colour 
Scissors
Needle and thread
pins 





Cut off sleeves of t-shirt, without cutting off seam. Cut open t-shirt sleeves to form as a pattern.





Pin the pattern on top of lace fabric then cut out fabric to form your sleeves.


Lay lace over front of t-shirt. Cut out and sew front on top of t-shirt (make sure to do this step before adding sleeves).

Finally, sew on lace sleeves.

(T-Shirt : Maxi's Department Store, Mandeville // Lace fabric: Ping's Fabrics, Mandeville )

 Jeggings : Shimmer // Shoes: Aldo // 
Necklace & Cardigan : F21 sweater here  and a better alternative to the necklace is here//
