T-Shirt Embellishment #2 I found a shirt almost exactly like this one at Kohls last week for $1.98. Having been scoping out some super cute tees like these at JCrew I decided to add a little embellishment. I went a little more formal then these free form examples- but the technique is the same. First, I went to the one store in our town that carries silk ribbons and they only had very narrow stuff. I purchased one package and also some wider part polyester ribbon (but the silk looks best and if you are patient enough to order some you can get it in fairly wide widths). I'm not patient. Gather, fold, twist and pin into place a few layers at a time. I used Bucilla Burgandy, 7mm, variegated 100% silk ribbon, Mill Hill Antique Glass Beads #03049 and at Hobby Lobby in the sewing section I found a wine colored, 1/2 inch ribbon (FX brand). This is so easy- you've gotta try it!

Do you have any Charlotte Russe stores near you? I was in ours and found some great, really basic tees for $4. I also had a Dollar Store Flour Sack Tea Towel that I bought thinking I would stencil something cute on it. If you would like to make one, here is what I did: Instructions: And you are done!
How To Create Today's Embellished Tops I look at the embellished t-shirts and cardigans at Anthropologie, J. Crew, and even Old Navy -- since last year, these retailers have featured thin, flimsy items with embellishments for $40-$70. I wonder who would buy these items, since looking at them shows that the work involved is quite simple. My next day off, I will be using the Flowing Tiers from Anthropologie (shown above) as inspiration for a new spring/summer tank. Start with a basic tank top slightly larger than you normally wear. What I like about this design: The striped jersey is carried up to make one shoulder, and the pleats counterbalance those stripes on the other side. Ways to make this design your own: Start with a larger t-shirt to create a different neckline shape. In this Ann Taylor Loft cotton cardigan, the designer took very long strips of torn cotton fabric, folded them in half, and stitched them in tight rounds to the cardigan, creating the sense of lush roses.

10 Ways To Style A Plain White Tee Few things beat a classic white tee. Throw it on with a pair of jeans, cork wedges, a long necklace, and you’re good to go just about anywhere. Best of all, white tees are such a staple that you can find them at just about any corner store, grocery store, mall, or pharmacy. We went with a few 3-packs of men’s undershirts by Hanes but, for most of these tutorials, you can use any old t-shirt you’ve got. 1. Grab a pair of tricked out cutoffs and throw on this top for a day of summer fun. To create this look, You’ll want to cut off the sleeves and collar of your tee. 2. This look is definitely a romantic one and makes us think of a refined take on hippie chic. For the how-to, you can go ahead and consider your tee a piece of jersey fabric at this point. 3. Maybe it’s time to up your workout style game. For our top, we had an old hoodie with a tear in it so we cut out the hood as well as a strip of fabric for the drawstring and two pieces of fabric for the sides of the shirt. 4. 5. 6. 7.

I used some old but in good condition T-shirts to make this fashionable necklaces adding some beads and embellishments. VOILA!

But it is doable with smaller size if you want a fitting shirt. You gonna need: T-shirt, chain, eyelets, pliers and scissors I cut the neck of the shirt using one of my shirt as model . After cutting you should have something like this: You have to cut the chains and place them on the shirt. Put eyelets and chains. Cut bottom and sleves. That's it! As the t-shirt is large, I made a belt with the remained chain.
