Fun 80s-Style T-Shirt and Leggings
I knew that I wanted to paint on the shirt and leggings. I actually had a product that makes screens and ink on hand. You could absolutely use fabric paint instead. I created the “totally rad” graphic on my computer in my word processing program.
The Iconic 80s Girl Skirt
I took black and pink netting that I actually cut away from Dollar Tree items and sewed them onto the leggings as a skirt. The black was from a Halloween item and the pink was three of those pink princess skirts for little girls.
These glasses are OH SO 80s! And they were right there at The Dollar Tree. I really think they made the look.
