Brazilian fashion house Colcci provided some exellent clothing customizing ideas in their SS09 collection. T-shirts with lace and satin ribbons sewd on ramdomly, bright colored tie-dye, doily prints. My favorite was the sleeveless shirt with gathered lace and fabric strips sewd on to the shoulders and front bodice worn with light blue high waisted bell bottoms and a straw hat. Perfect idea to use some of those left over fabric srips and lace ribbons! This shirt customizing could even be done from an old shirtdress or tunic. Just cut the hem to strips and gather it back on to the bodice top.
