I LOVE to run across ways to do fancy trims and decorations on garments — especially where the “purchased” ones of similar type cost a bundle of money.
At the Enchantresses3 blogspot, there is a super tutorial on how to make a corsage decoration on a regular tee. They say the “real deal” costs $29.95 from J. Crew and they’ve made theirs for around $6 to $8 bucks. WOW! This is GREAT!
Just look at the corsage appearance at the shoulder / neck. Their tutorial is very easy and gives every step of the process! Thanks ladies for this super idea!
While you’re in the store you might also want to buy a pack of men’s t-shirts and do some other decorating — go to the tutorials on PatternsThatFitYou to and you’ll be able to make a closet full of tee’s at very minimal cost.
And, while you’re at PatternsThatFitYou, check out the information on making scarves — they could also help extend your wardrobe!
There are a ton of free “tutorials” at PatternsThatFitYou, in addition to the ones just mentioned — run on by and see what all you can make.
