My DIY | Polka Dot Shirt


After seeing this image on Pinterest, I decided to give hand panted spots a try on a sheer blouse. With a circle sponge, I dotted on circles over the front of my shirt with fabric pant, let it dry, and the set it with an iron. Done and done, instant update to a basic blouse!
Supplies: Target Sheer Top, Fabric paint, Circle Sponge, Rowenta Travel Iron

    That looks awesome! Bookmarking this post for future inspiration, thank you!

  13. The gold was a great choice for a teal shirt! Admittedly, I don’t much “get” the sheer shirt thing (is it forced layering? Do people want to show off their bras? What’s the deal?!), but adding these opaque spots is so interesting texturally.

    Predictions for the Past

    maybe you could do some black/white polkadots with fuchsia combination.
