Lace is one of the hottest fashion trends of 2014, especially lace shirts! You can pair a trendy lace top with denim cutoff shorts, destroyed denim jeans, skinny jeans, wide leg trousers/wide leg jeans, full skirts, maxi skirts – the options are endless.

- Lay your tank top on the table face down and smooth out any wrinkles or iron.
- Cut up the back of the tank top not cutting the collar. Now you can cut a triangle all the way up the back or a two-inch gap. You can do this on the sides as well. This is where you get creative.
- Insert cardboard and lay lace over the cut and cut your lace just one inch larger than your gap.
- Cut lace and apply fabritac glue along the edges of the shirt then press lace down and let dry for 12 hours before wearing.
