Browsing around the internet today looking for sewing projects I could make with the girls, I came across some fun ideas for refashioning shirts. After seeing this tutorial by Tea Rose Home (and the following pictures are just me copying that tutorial) I was so inspired I went digging through the girls' clothes to find something I could use to try it out. I found one shirt that fit and one they'd outgrown... so here is my first try at refashioning a shirt. I am totally addicted now, and am dying to go looking for some clearance shirts to remake.
Holding one thread, bunch the fabric to make ruffles.
Straight stitch through center of 1.25" pieces, combining two strips end to end to make one long strip. Bunch to ruffle.
