Shirt Re-style: Sheer back DIY

This shirt was a Liz Claiborne shirt I wore in college that I absolutely loved.
 I will not even tell you how long ago that was.
I found it at my parents house hanging up in my old closet
and thought, "oooo I could restyle this classic shirt."
Sheer backs are so popular now, why not update an old shirt into something new.

 Things you need
  1. Old shirt
  2. Scissors
  3. Sheer material
  4. Sewing machine
  5. Straight Pins
  6. Chalk
Lay out your shirt
Cut out the back at the seams.
use your cut out as your template
Lay it on top of your sheer material,
 mark it with chalk and cut it out.
 Pin it on the underside of your shirt.
all the way around.

cut the bottom of the material however long you want it. 
Hem if necessary.
Now you have an updated shirt from a classic.
Have a wonderful Saturday.
Lots of <3
