It is really simple to do and dramatically changes the look of a simple (boring) piece. As a girly girl this was a great way for me to add a little lace to a summer staple.
I simply took a scrap of white knit fabric which was the same width as the bottom of my top and sewed lace to one edge. I then sewed it to the bottom of the top. As knit fabric doesn't fray it is very easy and forgiving to work with.
For the sleeves I simply took 2 rectangles of fabric which were as long as the armhole. I sewed lace to the edge then attached to the arm holes of the top. As I wanted more of a flutter sleeve than a fitted sleeve, and knit fabric stretches, you don't need to worry about ease or exact fitting.
Simple but very effective!
