    Oh, that turned out lovely. I adore clothes you buy for cheap and sprinkle some inspiration on to make into something fabulous. I might just try this idea, although I’ve never tried embroidery before.

    awesome! i had thought of attempting something similar to recreate this $150 version, also at j.crew. now i’m inspired to actually try it!

    Lovely! My sister has done this on a lot of her kids clothes but it looks cute on a white tee for me! Thank for the idea and instructions!

    I adored that shirt too, but since I’m not as clever as you are, I had to buy it. I am loving the inspiration. The technique would make a lovely pillow too. Maybe for Mother’s Day?

    Perfect timing! I just found a few small holes in a couple of t-shirts and I’m sure I could fix or camouflage them with this trick – thanks!

    cute! i agree with another reader — it’s much nicer than the jcrew tee.

  22. You are my fave...

    April 25, 2009

    And it turned out quite lovely.

    Gotta be honest: I like this more than the one at J.Crew. And I’m not just saying that. I liked the silk-embroidered shift dress when I first saw it and thought about using that as inspiration too. I’ll just add that to the list… Anyway, fantastic shirt!

    Oh this is too funny! I LOVE your project and it turned out beautifully. I just posted today a similar project with buttons added to a shirt that turned out badly.

    Maybe I should try your project to get back on the horse again!

    Oh I love it! I’ve been admiring the silk ribbon embroidery trend that I’ve been seeing lately. I must try this myself.

    It looks lovely. I’ve been wanting to do this since I first saw it on your blog and Emilystyle. After seeing this I’m going to “really, really” do it.
