I bought this oversized shimmery knit t-shirt over two years ago and from the day I bought it I knew exactly what I wanted it to look like:

Tada!


Here is my before:


And some litte details...




The rosettes and pleats were all made and attached with my glue gun so it was super easy and fast to make.  I'll post some action pictures when I take some. 

I'm so excited to wear it!

Vader appoved!

That turned out great! What else did you add? Is that lace on there too?
Will a glue gun keep the embellishment on thru washing & drying? If so, I'm gonna get my gun!  Cheesy

@whimsy
Thank you! I used a strip of lace about 6 inch wide, it was the leftover remnant of another dress I'm working on. There are also little rosette/bobbles that I made with the lace.  The rest was all made from the scraps from the sides of the tshirt when I resized it.

I'll probably have to hand wash it.  I've never attempted to wash hot glued embelleshment.  Maybe after I wear it out and about I'll know how durable they are.
