"This is the simplest wearable DIY you can make in couple of hours that looks like a designer item of clothing. You can use any piece of sheer fabric with embroidery of you liking, or some sheer materials with no embroidery at all. To upcycle your button down shirt, you’ll need a piece of fabric, scissors, thread and needle or sewing machine. I enjoy hand-stitching so I didn’t use sewing machine for this DIY project and it took me about 3.5 hours to complete. If you’ll be using a sewing machine it’ll probably take you about an hour."

NotesEnjoy wearing your new pretty, elegant, unique, and you-made top.
