anthropologie fancified boatneck DIY

DIY project: anthropologie's fancified boatneck $58


in my closet:

a black/white stripe top c/o romwe


and lace i purchased from etsy

you'll need:

lace
striped top
liquid stitch - (oh how i love thee! ♥)


estimated time: 10 mins.
project cost: low
(mine was only $5.71 for the lace since i got the top for free)
skill level: very beginner


the result:


* i shortened the bottom and made the waist more fitted

i saved over $50!


tips:
*anytime you use liquid stitch, i recommend hand washing. 
the glue sometimes comes off through the wash cycle.
