I’m loving all the fun shoulder details on tops right now. Leather, spikes, floral, sequins…the options are pretty much unlimited. Since I have a baby and spiked shoulders aren’t exactly friendly for holding babies (just thinking about that makes me cringe), I figured that sequins were a better way to go. Plus, I had an old sequined infinity scarf laying around begging to be used.
It took about ten minutes total for this project and was super easy, and I love how it turned out. Such a simple way to amp up a plain t-shirt!
- Plain T-Shirt (mine is this one from forever 21)
- Scrap fabric for pattern
- Matching Thread
Step 1. Use a scrap piece of fabric and cut a half circle shape. Try on your shirt and pin the scrap fabric to your shoulder to determine it’s the right size and shape. Trim and resize as needed. Now use that pattern to cut out your real shoulder patch fabric.
Step 2. Pin to the shoulder, just past the neckline, and sew with a straight stitch around the entire half circle as close to the edge as you can get. Repeat on the other shoulder.
And you’re done!
