 So I bought this adorable shirt at Salvation Army on Half off Everything except green tag day for $.50. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it and then.....I saw the one thing I dreaded.....A stain. It was a bit off center so I had to think of a creative way to cover it.  I took wide lace hem facing and cut the shirt straight up the center of the stain and notched it at the top. I then finished the rough edges so it wouldn't fray and then folded the edges and sewed the lace to it. Voila! fixed the stain and made it even more unique. I think the fact that its a bit off center works because the buttons on the top panel are off center. Cheesy

Definitely an improvement! Looks even cuter and more unique than I imagine it looked before, and now you get to brag that it was a thrift store find AND self-embellished.

That's a really good idea. I might have to try it sometime. That shirt was a great find. It's adorable and the lace makes it more so.

That's really cute. It definitely added an interesting touch, and a little bit of class! Love lace.
