My lacy top makeover.
As an ex-costumer for film, I can't help but be obsessed with my outfits for filming. I love shopping for them, altering them and choosing just the right accessories for them. My sister helps me, I plan way in advance and I drive my hubby nuts with my makeshift fashion shows.
I fell in love with this lacy tee with ruffled sleeves but the color was so WRONG for me! The price was $14.99, so that was perfect. I can't stand spending big bucks on clothes for filming because they always get ruined with paint and Mod Podge. I guess ruined sounds harsh....lets just say they get enhanced with craft supplies. :)
I had two options.
1. Return the shirt.
2. Dye the shirt.
As you can see, I whipped up a batch of hot water and wine colored RIT dye. I soaked a my pre-washed tee for about 20 minutes in the dye bath.
Then I rinsed her clean, washed in cold and hung dry. It turned out perfect!!! I was jumping for joy! My made-over tee and made it's TV debut today. I wore it for the Kitschy Kitchen episode of Plaid Craft TV.
