Pearly White Bow

I can almost taste Spring. The weather is getting warmer, and the sun is beginning to linger in the sky a bit longer in the evening allowing us the promise of the new season.  That being said, with Spring on it’s way, I feel it is necessary to do some “Spring cleaning,” so to speak, of my wardrobe.  I took an older shirt of mine from my closet, and ‘cleaned’ it up with some pearl trim purchased from Jo-Ann Fabrics. Below are the supplies I used.

I repeated that until the entire collar was lined with with the trim.

Fashion tip: When wearing white, its best to wear nude undergarments, not white.
See ya later Winter!

    Oooo, love this!! What a cute idea. I probably would have paid double for that what I would pay for the plain white shirt… great tip 🙂
