Today in Charlotte it was 60 degrees! I celebrated by wearing some spring clothes. I made this shirt yesterday afternoon, it feels fun and spring-y. I am so excited for warmer weather. I know it has been much colder in other places but I was raised in the desert, I can't help being whimpy when it comes to cold weather!
Before: Two (only one pictured) soft aqua t-shirts from Target. Purchased for $2.48 each.
Oops, I forgot to take a picture of the first step Here is a lovely little diagram. Cut one side seam and shoulder of the shirt. Lay it flat. Trim top (shoulder and neckline end) even. Cut 3.5" strips. Note: I am a sucky artist!
Sew strips together and gather top edge.
Pin ruffle to neckline.
Sew all the way around.
Sometimes the raw edge of a ruffle can look nice but I think it looks a little messy here.
To make the shirt have a more finished appearance, fold the neckband over the cut edge and pin.
Sew very close to the edge.
And now more of my awkward modeling...
