Simple Shirt Refashion Project - Reloaded!

I initially posted this project last February. But I added a little something to the shirt which I so looove so I decided to share again :)

On a previous post about the Valentine shirts, I mentioned that I got the idea from Modcloth. I surfed around that site for a while and found quite a few more ideas.

I like this one too:
ModCloth - Lacy-and-JoJo Top
I have a black v-neck shirt from Old Navy:
And then I went to the mall for some lace. The store I checked didn't have lace as wide as the one used on the ModCloth shirt so I had to settle for something narrower. And since my lace was narrower and a little stiff... I was afraid it would stick up if I ruffle too much so I just made tiny pleats as I sewed it on along the neckline of my shirt.

My finished product:
Since I don't wear sleeveless tops much, I kept the sleeves on the shirt. A far cry from what I initially wanted but this turned out nice :) And very easy to do too! Took about 15 minutes of sewing time.

I haven't worn this shirt yet since I posted it but today... I decided to wear it and added a few fabric flower brooches along the neckline as well:
I love how it looks! So feminine and soooo... a little out of place here in my office but I think they are used to me by now, haha! Happy Wednesday!
