Tools and Materials:
- Measuring tape
- Sewing needles
- Tailor chalk
- Suede/eyelet trim
Create a V
To get started on this amazing new shirt, I used chalk and a ruler to draw a V where I wanted to add my lace-up piece. I then cut the fabric, following my markings, and made sure not to cut the actual neckline. A great tip is to try on the shirt before you start cutting to make sure you are happy and comfortable with the piece!
Attach the eyelet trim
I measured my eyelet trim to match the V and laid it down making sure I had an equal number of holes on each side of the V. In this step I made sure to leave an extra hole on each side! Once I was sure about the placement, I pinned the eyelet trims down.
With everything in place, I sewed down the eyelet trims. To get a nice clean finish, which I love, I sewed the trim onto the collar as well.
I then tucked the two extra holes inside the shirt and sewed them together.
Lace-up the shirt
I thread my lace through the holes in the trims until I got the desired look! This part is so much fun because you can really create your own style!
There you have it! I adore the end result and the best part is how easy it was to make! What color trim would you use? Let me know in the comments below!
