Upcycle short shirt

I bought this cute simple shirt during a Wet Seal sale online and got it for about $5. The problem is the first time I washed it the bottom of the shirt shrunk upwards causing it to be far to short on me. I still liked the shirt and the only problem was the length so I decided to just add some lace to the bottom to get that length back.

I measured how many yards of lace I needed and headed to Hobby Lobby. Being the savvy shopper I am I brought along my 40% off coupon. You can almost always find a Hobby Lobby coupon online or from their E-mails.

This is such a quick and easy fix that adds a whole new dimension to the shirt! I pinned the lace along the bottom hem starting in the back. I overlaid the lace in the back to sew it together. Then I sewed along the existing hem to hide my new threads to add the lace.

No need to toss out a shirt because it shrunk a bit, just be creative and add to it!
