DIY lace cami

Hi, so the other day I went to Primark and picked up one of their chiffon cami tops (very similar to topshops) for £5. It's my second one cause I love them so much and was very disappointed when I realised  I picked up a size too small. Instead of returning it (which would involve a train journey) or getting rid of it I decided to give it a bit of a makeover and I think I like it even better now. Here it is:


label added

 To this you will need:
Sewing machine/needle and thread
Label (if adding)

1. to start with you need to lay your cami on the floor or table and draw a line down the centre from the top to the bottom. Cut along this line to open the top up.

2. With the right sides together pin the lace and one side of the top together, stitch this in place. Complete on the other side.

3. To finish off the top and bottom turn over the lace twice to cover the raw edge.

4. You can add a little label like I did by using ribbon with your chosen words on and stitching that in place.

Hope you like my DIY.
