DIY: Neon Trimmed Shirt

Adding neon trim to old shirts (or shorts, or skirts!) that need an update is such an easy way to bring something from frumpy and boring to snazzy and eye-catching. This is what the shirt looked like before: a lot of eh.
I apologize in advance for the really crappy photos. I did this project way late at night... Promise I'll feature it in an outfit post soon though!

What you need:
Fabric Glue
Bias Tape

What you do:
1) Decide where you want your trim. I chose to just do the front and back shoulder seam, but you could do the cuffs too or even the side seams. Did I mention that this shirt also wrinkles at the drop of a hat?

2) Glue the bias tape onto the shirt (or sew if you have matching thread/a working sewing machine...) and let dry.

3) Neon really does make everything better.

Also, don't forget to enter my giveaway!!!
