DIY: half & half (button up lace)

ANOTHER DIY. Lucky you.

I saw this idea at forever 21 for $15.00 and then again at Urban Outfitters for $39. Yeah, fuck that. I made my own.

I bought this button up at Salvation Army for $3.75.

I bought the lace for $7.00 at the Fabric Store (Which gave me a little less than a yard)

1. Cut the vest in half. So it covers your chest. And cut right below or above a button as a place marker.

2. Sew the opening of where you cut first. This just helps with the pinning process.

3. Turn it inside out, pin lace to shirt.
