Pearl Encrusted Deep V t-shirt. I’m always worried now when I have an idea for a DIY that one of the other DIY bloggers has already done it. Sadly I don’t have time any more to look at too many blogs so please know that if someone else has done this, it’s by complete coincidence that I have too. I have learned over the years of blogging that we DIYers tend to all think alike.

But so much better *NOTE* the “V” looks deeper on the dress form than it is in reality BUT your pearls or beads WILL weigh it down more than it normally sits on your chest. *NOTE* Once embellished, your shirt will have to be dry-cleaned or carefully hand-washed and hung to dry.

. * Beginning somewhere near the center of your V and with your middle sized pearl or bead, thread your needle through the back of your T and hand stitch your bead into place. Bow Back Shirt.
