DIY with Natalia Oh
This do-it-yourself (DIY) lace T-shirt costs less than $400 to make and took a little over an hour because I used my hand to sew. It would be much quicker and neater if you use a sewing machine. The key is to cut neatly and use matching thread. Wear it with jeans, jeggings, a maxi skirt, with a work suit or with linen pants for a weekend getaway.
Round neck cotton T-shirt (Bought at Maxi's Department Store $200)
1 yard stretch lace fabric in matching colour
Needle and thread
Cut off sleeves of T-shirt without cutting off seam. Cut open T-shirt sleeves to form as a pattern.
Pin the pattern on top of lace fabric then cut out fabric to form your sleeves.
Lay lace over front of T-shirt. Cut out and sew front on top of T-shirt (make sure to do this step before adding sleeves).
Finally, sew on lace sleeves.
