DIY. Doily Blouse

Supplies: loose tank
doily/crochet table runner


Summer is coming up and what better DIY then a touch of crochet blouse. This is as simple as they get and all it requires is a tank and a thrifted doily.

DIY instructions:


Pin the doily on the front of the shirt. I got mine thrifted, it was a rectangle table runner.  I like the look of the rectangular shape rather than a typical circle doily to looking "crafty." If the shirt is tight, cut it in half first and sew the doily on the cut seams. 


Top stitch on the shirt.  I gathered the bottom since the shirt was longer then the doily...that way it is long in the back still. 


See the gathered pleats? Do this by folding/sewing pleats near the end so it matches up to the doily. Then cut the front piece off so the front is sheer.


so easy...
& cute.

    2. I think you have the right idea - looked online at ebay, and event he inexpensive doilies are more than what you would pay at a thrift store. Now I just have to find the time to go thrifting!
