ruffle me happy

Ruffly shirt refashions have been all over the crafty blogosphere lately. Since I had the sewing machine out and warmed up from sewing Halloween costumes, I figured it was high time I had a whack at a ruffly tee of my own.

I'm definitely going to be making more of these lovelies.

This was the easiest shirt refashion I've done so far:

I started with two ill-fitting orange t-shirts. The first one got nipped in about a half inch on each side and I changed the round neckline to a V-neck.

I cut two 3" wide strips out of the second shirt, sewed them together, gathered them, and stitched them on to the first shirt. Voila!

Time: about 30 minutes
$$: FREE!! The shirts were hand-me-downs from a friend (thanks Shauna!)

I did make the headband. It's reversible-- with solid gray on the other side. It was so easy. You should try it!

Dang. Now I just need some shirts I can cut into!

I love this one! It is so pretty on. I think I'll make Isabella one.

Careful, Shauna is going to want her shirt back. Love the tee.
Delightful little blog you've got going here.

Wow, cute! Now I wish I hadn't given that old ill-fitting t-shirt to Sariah to use for painting in.
