My T-Shirt Ruffle Refashion (PDLB!)
I have been dying to make one of the several ruffle tees and/or tanks I have pinned over the past few months. I have a great love (borderline addiction) with all things ruffly and actually have a stack of about 10-15 tees and tanks just waiting to be refashioned with ruffles. Last week I decided it was TIME. I have waited long enough. I have worked on enough projects for others. It was time to work on something just for me. (This is also the same day I worked up 3 new scarves, one of which can be viewed here. The others to follow sometime soon.) I haven't seen any other ruffle refashions done this way using a patterned shirt, and I am really happy with how it turned out. I hope the ruffles curl up a little in the wash; they are a little big for my liking. But overall, I am pleased with this shirt and it really wasn't very difficult to put together!
Being a fairly Plain Jane kind of girl, I didn't stray from this color palette when choosing my buttons. I did throw in a little funk by alternating squares and circles...I'm such a risk taker. ;-)
(Please forgive my sideways photos...My editing software and blogger are not agreeing today.)
Note: I did not use the technique of sewing my buttons on with my machine. I simply sewed them by hand while I finished watching Bride Wars. They didn't take long and I could hear the movie better! (O:
Hopefully this might inspire you to try your own version of this, or any, ruffle refashion! Have a great day! (O:
