i took an old green t shirt and a pink vest with a skull pattern (i think green & pink look great together!). The t shirt had a hole on the chest and the vest was too small so a pair of scissors, some beads, lace and a lot of sewing later....

Hey Presto!!





(next time i'll try to remember to take a before pic!)

Wow,
What a great shirt. What a great use of two shirts that would have been thrown away. The colors are fun and i really like the beads. Nice touch. Grin

Great idea and nice work! Smiley Smiley

I can't tell from the photo, did you ruffle the lace or is it cut to accommodate the curve?

Thanks all! Smiley

The lace is ruffled & the pleats on the pink fabric were to give it some shape. It was so old & stretched!
