This was SO easy to do, I just had to draw a little tute for those who expressed interest Cheesy



That's my entry for Challenge 59: Super Ugly to Super Awesome. I think it's pretty awesome! It started out pretty LAME.



Boooooriiiiing. The print was cute, though! Do you have a lame little shirt that could stand to be girlified? Following the steps below, you can have a whole new awesome shirt in about an hour (or less, if you're an accomplished refashionista).





Tadaa! If you make one, I'd love to see it! Feel free to post your version in the comments Cheesy

The neckline also looks different.  Is that an actual chain or an embroidery chain stitch?  Either way, I like it.

Freakin awesome. I have a music tee I want to work over. I really like the ruffle at the bottom, and the change in the neckline. As much as I love tee shirts that neckline is not the most flattering! Great job Grin

That's real metal chain! I just hand-stitched it around the edge very carefully Cheesy A chain stitch with metallic floss could conceivably give a similar effect.
