T-Shirt Refashion With Lace Hem

1-DSCF3552T-Shirt Refashion With Lace Hem

1-DSCF3541We’ve all seen them…heck, we’ve all bought them…those t-shirts that are available in every color imaginable. They are a bit of a staple in my closet, as I am sure they are in other people’s closets too. They are great worn with sweaters, jackets and other layers when the weather is cool, but when the weather gets warm…I do have to admit to being a bit bored with the look when I wear them by themselves.

2-DSCF3543Sorting through my lace stash, I decided a little refashion was in order.

I added wide flat lace to the bottom of a t-shirt. If you do this, I strongly suggest using a zigzag stitch. A zigzag stitch will allow the the shirt to stretch without breaking the thread.

3-DSCF3544The extra lace made the tee way too long, but I had no intention of stopping there.

5-DSCF3552I folded a deep cuff above the lace and stitched at the top of the cuff.

I love the way it turned out. 😉

  1. Great idea for some t-shirts not your favorites. I have a few that are too short since I’m long waisted, would be great way to lengthen and add some pretty to them. I’ve got lots of lace so will see what can be used for this. Have to dig summer/Spring t-shirts out so can fix them up. Great, super idea Cyndee, glad you shared this. Thanks for tip about using zigzag stitch. I use zigzag a lot when working with burlap on sides for table runners so burlap won’t keep shedding strings, gives burlap nicer edge.
    Hope it’s Springy where you are, have great weekend
