Have you ever had a favorite clothing item that got ruined somehow??
One of my favorite slouchy Ts from my summer capsule wardrobe ended up with two holes around the pocket.
It’s probably because I didn’t not follow the washing instructions….whoops! I know it’s just a simple t-shirt, but I wanted to try and save it – and try my hand at a little “refashion.” I have decent sewing skills, right???
I went to the fabric store to find something to line or cover the pocket, so basically I could just cover the holes up. I looked at lace, sequins, fringe, etc, but eventually decided on about a 1/2″ leather-like trim. I got a yard just in case of mistakes and brought it home.
I mitered the corners like a frame and glued down 3 strips right around the pocket. I do want to stitch them down both sides, but my machine wasn’t cooperating. For now, some liquid stitch is doing the job
I’ve even since washed it on delicate cycle (inside out of course), and the tape is still in place! I will really be stitching it on though. I think it will add a nice touch and make it look more professional.
What do you think? Have you ever salvaged a garment like this??
