This a great way to transform a sweat shirt. You can always find sweat shirts on sale and I know I have extra lace at home. It should not take me long at all to do this and I will have a pretty top. You could always add lace to the sleeves if you want to. Thank you.

I like the look of the lace front replacement on the sweat shirt. Rather a classy recycle type idea. Not sure though if the lacy front has a lining to it. Sweatshirt redos are one of my favorites. This practical recycle idea could be taken a step further and make the lacy front into a cardigan style.
