There is a slight twist to this diy... but I would like to inform you first that the original idea was that of A Beautiful Mess. It was posted back in may and a few weeks after that I tried the idea. The problem was it didn't work for me.
This was the issue (see picture below) I wore the shirt one day... had a ton of compliments but it slowly unraveled. I was so frustrated that I threw the shirt in a box under a bunch of other projects that had failed. Until the other day. I wanted to have the shirt for fall since its kinda chilly but still warm. I went thrifting and ran into a plasticy lace. It was stiffer and unlike the soft cotton I originally used, I thought this might work.
So I redid the lace and it did work! I wanted to share this with you because a beautiful mess doesn't give you specifics on the kind of lace which was something I didn't think would matter but did. So let's begin with supplies!!
A sewing machine
A large piece of Lace... (don't choose soft cotton pick something stiffer and with a plasticy feel to it)
and a button up (mine was thrifted $3.00!!)
Leave an inch or two around to allow room for sewing.
Match it up on the inside of your shirt the same way as the piece you cut out and removed.
and there you have it a nice lace button up for fall!!! I am so proud that I finished a project from the failure box!
