I’m not normally fond of red when it comes to my wardrobe.  Cranberry red, yes.  Ronald McDonald hair red, no.  But this Sunday, my church is having a very special event that involves everyone wearing red t-shirts to show unity.  So I have to oblige.

PICT0005 (5)I forgot to take a before photo of this shirt, but you aren’t missing much.  I got it for less than a quarter at a small thrift store and it was alright except for being too big for me and painfully plain.  Didn’t take much to fix that.  I removed the sleeves before taking it in and cutting off the neckline and bottom hem.  I re-hemmed the bottom and stitched lace on the neckline before turning it and stitching it.  After re-attaching the sleeves, I stitched some lace on them and elastic to gather them.  The final touch was some ribbon on the neckline to tie across my neck.  Now I have a pretty t-shirt that will still work for church.  It sometimes amazes me how versatile an old t-shirt can be.

Here’s the updated list:

  • Red shirt
  • Red skirt
  • Hair bows
  • Clock
  • Yellow shirt
  • Headband
  • Bag
  • Big bunny
  • Wristbands
  • Little bunnies
  • Easter dress

One down, ten to go.  The next one is just about done, but it may have hit a snag.  You’ll see what I mean later.
