The classic white tee is well, a classic! But how many classic white tees can you own before you become a little bored of this basic staple? Here are three simple additions to jazz up any plain white t-shirt, perfect for those bulk sets of tees that come in three-packs!
Want to make a flirty tank top or beach cover up? Cut off the sleeves and down the seams of your t-shirt. Sew the lace to each end of the open gap on both sides. If you’re looking for a more modest option, just leave the seams as they are, and sew the lace directly onto the sides of the tee!
To add a little bohemian flair to any plain tee, all you need is some gorgeous floral ribbon! Just line the top band of the pocket and the bottom band of the tee with one of our embroidered jacquards. Try our 18mm Imported Floral Jacquard, 13mm Jacquard with Picot Edge or 35mm Imported Floral Jacquard!
Pump up the glam factor by adding some sparkle to your sleeves! Sew clusters of assorted sew-ons to just the sleeves or the pocket of the tee for some understated edge!
Now that boring white tee is anything but! How will you be wearing your white tee?

I love the crisp tailored look of these trimmed out skirted tables! I think it adds a fresh dimension to a traditional idea. Skirted tables are a great way to hide something ugly,give yourself more storage and create something beautiful!
So when I scavenged through my Mother in Laws basement and found the perfect size sofa table, I was so excited to make a chic table skirt for it!
My inspiration: This foyer by Tom Scheerer
This linen console from Beach Dwelling… I love the laces, so beachy and whimsical!

He inspired Jenny of Little Green Notebook to do the same! Hers is a no-sew DIY!
Here is a photo of the my skirted table! The fabric, an awesome KWID for Lee Jofa was on the pricy side, so I had my friend pillow maker Melanie of Plum Cushion whip this up for me!
We used a jacquard to give it that crisp tailored look that I loved in the photos above.
Here is a close up of the fabric and the jacquard!
