If You Want Something, Do It Yourself- Lace Tee


When I saw this dress from Monique Lhuillier, I instantly fell for it. There's something I love about the unexpected placement of lace on this design. I had this plain purple tee at home and knew I could use the same kind of concept. If you want one too...here's how to do it yourself.
                                                                                                                                                         


1. Supplies- Tee, lace, scissors, paper & fabric glue (ribbon is optional)
2. Make a template for lace design
3. Once your template is drawn, cut it out
4. Fold lace until you have four layers, place template on top
5. Cut out template so you have 4 triangles
6. Lay out lace on tee in the design you want
7. Dot each inside point with fabric glue, 
this made it easier for me to keep lace in place while I glued down all the edges 
8. Cut ribbon to length of the triangles outer edge, apply fabric glue to ribbon
9. Glue down ribbon to each lace triangle & wait to dry


Hope you all enjoyed this...if you have any question just let me know :)
