I know I am posting a lot of tutorials lately but I started a new blog and I am trying to get practice making instructions. So feedback is much appreciated.


Another super easy project. This one literally took me 15 minutes. Well it took like 40, but if you arent stopping to take and re-take pictures of yourself it should only take 15 minutes.

Here is the shirt before. Just a plain shirt that I had cut a shallow boat neck on. The back looks just like the front (in fact since I cut the label off I couldnt tell the front from the back)


First I pinned the doily to the RIGHT side of the back of the shirt.


Then I sewed the border careful not to gather the shirt anywhere or the shape of the shirt would have changed. Then I turned the shirt inside out and cut the shirt away (think reverse applique).


I got so many compliments that I cant wait to do this again. I just need to find another doily. I think next time I will put it on the side.

that looks really good!  you know what could be interesting, too?  if you did one on the front but put a panel of contrasting color behind the doily for decency/interest.

That is gorgeous.  And you look so great in it.  I'm awed by how well-centered that doily is!  I'm going to try that on a pair of jeans!

I love it. I think I might make on and put the doily on the side... genius!

How did you make it boatneck? Was it just a normal crewneck that you cut? I am just a little confused on that part but I know it wasn't part of this tut so I can look elsewhere. Thanks!

I just laid the shirt flat and cut from one shoulder to the other just deep enough to cut the collar off. Did that make sense? If not I can take a picture.
