Okay, I didn't really mean to make the title sound so cheesy, but it somehow applied to my craft today. I had this plain blouse with black swirly designs on the corners, but totally plain in the middle..
Too plain! Atleast for my taste! I had to make it more appealing.
So I glam-fied it to this:
My mind started whirring and stopped onto something that I was making a lot these days, but couldn't get enough of it: Fabric Flowers!! So I set on to make some flowers, and cut a few circles of coordinating fabrics, and a wide strip of cloth to seem like a branch. Here is what it takes
I used 4 different fabric remnants I had to make the flowers. I cut them into circles of varying sizes and singed them using a candle flame. You can view the detailed tutorial for making these fabric flowers here. I also cut an wide strip of fabric to make the branch-like pattern on the shirt.
Now for the pattern! I used a random pattern to hand-stitch the branch and glued the flowers. You can use any pattern of your liking to 'glam-ify' any plain or dull clothing of yours. My friend used flowers made similarly to spice up her curtains and bed post!! There are endless possibilities, really.
Here is how my shirt looked after the restyling (Ignore the white patch near the top corner: I started to paint something, and changed my mind!)
