My wardrobe is pretty boring. I’ve known this for some time, but decided to do something about it. What makes things boring is my penchant for plain, solid-colored shirts. Like, I love white t-shirts. I actually have to make an effort to not buy any more plain, white t-shirts. They have to have something on them – texture, an interesting cut, something – or they’re not allowed to come home with me.
So what about the shirts I’ve already got? I have loads of art supplies
thus no excuse, so I attacked three of them. (And you’ll have to trust me that they look better in person than my photography skills do them justice.)
Shirt #1! A plain, black, v-neck shirt – a bit stretched out so it was getting lower-cut each time I wore it. A little olive fabric, quick sewing, a couple pearl beads, and it’s better!
I actually got this idea straight from a co-worker’s shirt – except hers was white flowers on a white background with some pretty dip-dying.
Shirt #2! A long-sleeved, white shirt attacked with fabric paint.
You know how you get something new and are excited and want to wear it immediately? Don’t do this with long-sleeved shirts on 90-degree summer days… Even if your office has air-conditioning…
Shirt #3! One of those plain, white t-shirts I love so much. Some leftover strips of fabric from this project
plus sewing machine equals no-longer-boring.
Seriously, I woke up too early one morning and couldn’t go back to sleep before work. So twenty-minutes of work and I made this. Also copied from a shirt I saw a co-worker wearing that I thought was cute. Geez, I hope my co-workers don’t think I’m staring at their chests when I keep trying to figure out how to make their shirts…
