I love tunic style tops so when I found a plain tunic inspired t-shirt at Target, I knew that it would be perfect to alter.
I purchased a larger size than normal- for a little extra room- tunics can't be tight!
I just read that lace is everywhere in fall 2010 fashion so I decided to use a little lace and beads to add to the shirt.
I picked out a two different shades of green lace.
Next I used a a piece of silk ribbon that I folded up
and sewed it to the top of the lace.
I knew that I wanted to add gold beads for a little sparkle but I just didn't have the patience or time to hand sew them all on..insert Aileen's Super Fabric textile adhesive here. I love this stuff- heavy duty, dries clear and is great to use with embellishments.
I added little gold beads down the surface of the ribbon.
Last, I used Fabric Fusion (fabric glue) to adhere the lace and beads down the very middle of the shirt and let dry.
And there you have it- a lightweight and SIMPLE tunic that can be worn by itself....
or under a jacket!
