Project Reimagined: The White Tee

Project Reimagined is a diy challenge created by Lindsay of Shrimp Salad Circus to inspire you to think outside the box and see things for more than what they are. For Project Reimagined, a handful of different bloggers are all given the exact same item and asked to turn it into something new. This week’s project starts with a plain white tee shirt, and it has been reimagined by Lindsay of Shrimp Salad Circus, Katie of Lemon Jitters, Stacie of Stars for Streetlights, and Lexy of The Proper Pinwheel.  

For this project, my original vision included lace and dye. I knew I wanted to incorporate those two things. And I actually stuck to that plan! Here's what I came up with.
Hey guys, don't look at my overgrown eyebrows, k? Did you just look? I said NOT to look! ;)

Okay, here are the six elements that took this from a plain white boy's tee to a fancy-sleeved tee.
I used a mix of dark blue and black dye and it basically turned out purple. Oh well! I still like it. This shirt is a little lopsided. It has it's imperfections but I feel like I learned a few things working on that neckline and the sleeves. Tshirts are a great playground for beginning seamstresses! It's a cheap, easy way to play.

Would you like to participate in Project Reimagined? Just create a blog or Facebook post with a picture of something you’ve created from a plain white tee shirt, and link it up in the comments on this post. I can’t wait to see what creative projects you guys come up with!

Wow, I would have never known that was a t-shirt. The lace flower on the shoulder is perfect.

Your eyebrows....never looked. :) I swear.

Really cute! I love how the sleeves are looser too.

This is too cute! I have a BIG white tshirt that could use some customization. I might do something like this and add a little lace to the bottom to give it a little more length and make it into a comfy dress.
