A couple of weeks ago I got asked to join a little sewing project. Stefi from Just Chic asked me came up with an idea to have an 5 girls from 5 different blogs all start with the same item of clothing and see what their individual creative genius will come up with.
The sewing project started with this JoAnns t-shirt. You know the ones. The big boxy somewhat androgynous ones that go on sale pretty regularly. The one rule was that it had to remain a shirt. I thunk and I thunk and I thunk some more (yes I know that is not a real word). I really wanted to be able to not go out and purchase any thing additional. I chose to embellish using the t-shirt itself.
This is what I came up with, a gloriously ruffly t-shirt. A much more feminine version to its once boring cousin.
Here is what I did for this pretty little refashion-
-redid the neckline
-altered to be a fitted tee
-used old t-shirt to be the panel for the ruffles
-cut up the front of the original shirt into strips
-sewed it all together
Add a cute cardigan, a cute flower in and NO ONE would know that shirt came from JoAnns.
Go over and check out the other ladies and see what they made-

Oh and in case you want to make your own ruffly tee, these shirts are on sale this weekend at JoAnns for 2 dollars. You could even buy two instead of using an old tee shirt for the panel.
