One of my favorite "DIY" projects I make is to change my old clothes - adding a little something extra, an applique or embroidery; transforming them into brand new, completely different looking outfits. I had this shirt for a long time and barely wore it - may be twice. I think it was sitting in my closet forever, because it was in a stale and outdated style. Since it was in a good condition and one of my favorite colors, I knew I have to do something with it. I adjusted its length - made it cropped style, and then embellished it with a leather applique at the sides and a suede cord along the hem and mid section of the shirt. Now I can say that I creatively rescued my old shirt.
