Mommy's Ruffle Shirt Repurpose

Last Saturday night I decided I needed a new summer shirt to wear on Easter. I mean Miss Priss was getting a new dress, I needed something new too! Here is what I came up with.

Photobucket

I started with a Men's XL Navy shirt.

I cut off the sleeves. Save those for later.

I placed one of my old shade shirts on top. 
I knew I wanted that for the basic shape of my shirt.

Photobucket

I made a new neckline and made a deeper round neck in the front. Can you tell the difference between the front and the back? I thought the arrow might help.


Photobucket

With the sleevs I cut 4 strips. I did a running stitch and made ruffles.
Two are shorter than the others. I put my ruffles on the shoulders. 
The shorter ones on top.

Here is how it turned out. 
I am very excited for my new summer shirt. 
It is the perfect length and has fun ruffles.

Perfectly Girlie!

Oh and I don't know about you guys, but I love to plug in my iPod and listen to some music, while I sew. Here is what I have been listening to lately. I just can't get enough. The songs are so catchy and fun:>

Glee: The Music, Volume 1

Glee: The Music - Journey to Regionals

  27. I just found your blog a few days ago, but I am totally obsessed!! I absolutely love this shirt. But, I have a question about your flooring. What type of wood did you guys use? I mean, like, what size boards did you use? It looks completely amazing. :D
