Picture of Sequin Pocket Top: Up-cycled Shirt
Turn any plain shirt into a trendy sequin pocket top.

I have seen many people wearing these shirts and after doing a little research I found out they go for anywhere from $50-$150!!  Sounded a little expensive for me.  So I added a sequin pocket to an old black tank top and now have a chic shirt!

How do you think this would look if you simply added sequins to an existing pocketed tank? The pocket doesnt sit low like these and isnt oversized, but I feel like it would have the same effect...

I like that, if for no other reason than it sticks it to the over-priced "designer" ranges.

Speaking as a hand-bag-less male of the species, though, I'm not sure how useful that pocket is - how many screwdrivers can it hold?

Sew a few super magnets into the inside of the pocket, and boom - instant tool catches. Just reinforce the back with some denim or similar strong material. That way, you don't risk your shirt's integrity.

It's funny - my university picks up these trends so fast (seemingly before they begin), but I've never seen this one. But I agree with Kiteman - I can't believe the ridiculous prices the labels charge...
