DIY T-Shirt Chevron Pocket Update

I got this oversize t-shirt which I wanted to decorate somehow. Enter fabric paint! I had some black and some gold puffy fabric paint left from previous projects, so this was a no-brainer.

Also, I am super super in love with this skirt I bought from Forever 21! Too bad the puppy will try to nip at any clothes I wear, so this is not an every day option right now...

How to:

First I did this zig zag pattern with the black fabric paint:
I waited for the black layer of paint to dry (4 hours according to the package), then I painted the golden pattern in between the black ones. Should be wash safe after 3 days.
Not too elegant in zoomed close-up...


But looks fun from a bit of a distance.

Both oversize t-shirt and maxi skirt are from Forever 21. My creme blush (Maybelline Dream Bouncy in Hot Tamale) seems to match the skirt color pretty well, too!

What would you have done with the pocket?
