For this refashion you will have to imagine a plain white t-shirt. I didn't take a photo, but that is pretty easy right? First I put it into a purple dye bath with a few other thrift store finds. Then I recut the neckline and cut a strip out of dotted cotton knit that I had. I ironed it in half and commenced to hand sew it onto a new neckline.
The polka dot neckline looked a bit out there on its own, so I thought about putting strips on the sleeves. But my bloggie friend Ricë had recently been doing reverse applique and I thought I would like to give it a try.
The paper shapes in the background were me trying out different shapes. I decided to go with heart shaped leaves.
Here I have done a second leaf and then cut them both carefully out. You then go around to the right side and cut away the fabric that covers your shapes. Be sure you cut inside the stitching.I think the leaves might have looked better without the internal lines, but I still like it.
