Urban Outfitters {$2 Hack}

Last week, my sister and I were perusing Urban Outfitters for our Teens {and maybe just a little peek for us:}. While heading to the Sale room, we passed some cute t-shirts with lace trim that we loved! But, the price tag, {$34!!} not so much. 

See, just a simple Hanes t-shirt with eyelet trim. But $34?!?! {This is the Urban Outfitters model shirt}

I was on a mission. I headed to a couple of Goodwill stores on the way home and found two $.99 t-shirts and whisked them home to be cleaned. 

Umm, Yes please! The other shirt I found had the California bear on it, so a BIG win for me!

Once cleaned, I cut the arms off of the shirts and pinned lace around the inside perimeter of the shirt and sewed the lace {also .99} in place.

The zig zag stitch gives the jersey fabric a lot of room to stretch.

Each t-shirt cost me $2 to make, and my girls love them! I'm thinking the California one will stay in my closet, but I am on the hunt for a few more fun shirts to stock my girlies up with some frilly Urban Outfitter knock-offs. Such a quick {& frugal} way to feminize any simple t-shirt. 

What are some fun ways you economize with your wardrobe?? I'd love to know....
