Here is a new shirt refashion.
First I started out with a plain tee that had a hole in the shoulder from a project gone wrong. Then I found this little flower embellishment at jo ann fabrics for $2 with a coupon!
Next I cut off the sleeve to make it a 3/4 sleeve. I will use the sleeves to make the ruffles
I then cut othe sleeves into four pieces and sewed all the pieces together. Then, using the widest stitch on my sewing machine I sewed right down the middle of the strips, then pulled one string to make it ruffle. When I had it ruffled where I wanted, I sewed it on the shirt!
My finished shirt! After sewing the ruffle one, I sewed on the flower embellishment!
So many possibilites!
