And I bought two ivory long sleeved shirts on clearance at Walmart a couple months for $1 each. I cut one up and made flowers, then handstitched them around the neckline of the second shirt to add some detail and interest. Much better, don't you think?
With the minimal cost of the shirts to start with, it wasn't much of a gamble to work on these because if they didn't turn out right it was no huge loss of my investment. Now they look more like boutique shirts that would have cost much, much more in a specialty shop. Fun projects!
