MMJ day 14: Simple embelished top

Tuesday, June 14

The sun is out today, and I am feeling much better. The BBC weather report says its going to be nice this week, but Thursday will have some showers.  So for now, I am enjoying this sunshine.

This morning, I decided to embelish my top, and give it a different look. I have not really felt like sewing lately, so I thought I should just do a refashion, and save myself all the headache. So here goes:

  1. You will need an old top or new one, depending on your personal tastes.
  2. A purchased embelishment. You can make one yourself if you are so inclined.
  3. Matching thread and a needle

Lay your top down

Take your embellishment

Place it on your top, re-arranging it until you are satisifed with the placement.

Handsew it in place and trim the excess tulle

Wear it to work, and be proud of yourself !!!
I know its a lazy man project, but I like it. Its suitable for days when you really want a new outfit, but you don't want to go through all the hassle of making one from scratch.

Have a nice day everyone.


  1. I love it too ! Its crazy to try to sew everyday as its not pratical but you can still refashion items to make them difeerent. Great Post ! Love the colour.

  2. Great re-fashion. Love the colour. So simple yet so effective especially when you're not in the mood.

  3. I love the sleeves on that shirt. I haven't tried emblishing yet. I have some iron on stars that I've had for the girls since I got my machine in 08 lol

  4. That's brilliant. Would love to try something like that!
