T-Shirt Refashion

I recently picked up a bunch of shirts for $1.94. Most of them are quite plain and could use a little splash of color. A little May Arts Ribbon brought a plain shirt to life.

T-Shirt Refashion

To create this shirt you will need May Arts lace (NQ04), faux silk (EA27), flowers (439-01), a button and a sewing machine with coordinating thread.

T-Shirt Refashion

  1. Sew a straight line down the center of the ribbon or lace with a long length stitch. Gently pull bobbin tread to ruche ribbon.
  2. Pin lengths of ruched ribbon to the t-shirt.
  3. Cut lace in half to have a variety of widths.
  4. Sew ruched pieces to the t-shirt.
  5. Create an irregular pattern for a unique look. Trim threads.
  6. Layer silk flowers. Attach to the breast of shirt with a button in the center.

    Cute T shirt. I like the way the added ribbons play off the strips in the shorts/pants.
