Make It : Beaded Button Down Shirt
Posted by Laura Kaesshaefer
Today's guest post comes from the talented team over at Honestly...WTF:
"Simply sewing on a few sparkly beads to a shirt placket could easily transform any old item in your wardrobe, adding much needed sparkle and texture!"
-Any button down shirt (we love the one they use from jcrew!)
-An assortment of metal, plastic or glass beads - try artbeads.com
-Needle and thread
1 "With a double knotted thread, begin by pushing the needle through the back of the middle of the shirt placket."
2 "Slide beads onto your needle and begin sewing them to the shirt using a running stitch."
3 "After adding 5-6 beads, secure the stitch by tying off the thread with a double knot. This helps reinforce the stitch, especially with the weight of the beads."
4 "Continue to add beads until you're approximately 3/4 of the way down the shirt."
