Hey Guys! Hope everyone had a great weekend!
While I was taking a brief respite from Home DIY Projects, I’ve been trying my hand at re-making tee shirts!
I’m adding a new category in the left-hand column pull-down menu: All Things to Wear! I’ve been on a bit of a roll and done several re-makes! I’ll be sharing in the coming weeks!
They’re all over blog-land, these brilliant young ladies that take regular tees and cut them down and add J Crew inspired (or Anthropologie inspired) embellishment.
One site I’ve come to love is: A Few of my Favorite Things!
Jessica did a shirt similar to this one & that’s where I got the idea!
I started my tee shirt projects with one that’s super easy…this is a shirt from Target ($10.00). I didn’t have to cut it down, it fit perfectly.
I cut up another old tee and made a couple of ruffles
Making ruffles out of knit couldn’t be easier Peeps…cut a long strip, no need to hem the sides. Sew a straight stitch down the center of the strip with machine set to a wide length and width. You can do this by hand too, just sew a basting stitch down the center of the fabric strip.
Then carefully pull the thread to gather until you have the ruffled look you like!
I played around with where to put them and then pinned…
Turned out kinda cute huh?
I thought I may wear it to my daughter Emma’s baby shower…who knows!
Okay…I’ll be linking my friends!
