...we also worked on another piece that we scoped out in Anthropologie's most current catalog!
We loved this lace stripe combo and found it would be easy to make with two thrifted pieces.
A - striped shirt...
B - lace shirt...
And little side note...we're gonna make two tops, one for each of us to don. Ready to make a Anthro-faux-logie piece??
We layered the options to get an idea of how everything would look...
...and then we got cutting!
We used the Anthropologie catalog page as a guide as we trimmed. After we trimmed the lace, we used it as a template for cutting the striped shirt and sleeves.
Once all our pieces were cut, we did a Frankenstein number on them!! We began to restitch the top part of the lace shirt to the bottom part of the striped shirt and sleeves and the top part of the striped shirt to the bottom part of the lace shirt.
We attached all the pieces and put our new shirts on!!
Hello, how cute are these??
...and ours cost just a few bucks.
Because we paired black lace with black and white stripes, we wore some melon-y red jewelry to tie in the original lace color from the Anthropologie version.
Oh, and those dangling threads from the striped shirt...they got a little trim. No need to toss a piece like this when that happens!! All you need to do is take a pair scissors and cut off the stragglers!
Two new pieces created from two old pieces. I like the sound of this!!
Always a fun crafternoon when you've got a buddy in tow to throw ideas by. We've got a few more projects around the bend...
Any fun projects on the horizon for the weekend?? I've got my fantasy football draft and couldn't be more excited :) Well that and a few more remakes to put finishing touches on!!
