Are you ready for a very cheap, simple and fast refashion?
All you need are the following supplies:
* A plain t-shirt with a rounded neckline
* Ruffled lace trim in either a matching or contrasting color
(See pic below, I found mine at Hobby Lobby.)
* Tread, same color as trim
You will need the following tools:
* Sewing machine
(My excuses for the bad pictures below,
I tend to do most of my crafting at night,
which doesn't really help...)
Begin by cutting a piece of trim slightly longer than the neckline.
Pin it down, folding the ends by the shoulder under.
Cut a second piece of trim, about half the size of the first one.
Pin it down underneath the first row, making sure there is an overlap.
Cut the third piece slightly smaller than the second one,
and attached it like described before.
Cut and attach your fourth piece.
Now, it's time to sew the pieces in place.
Sew the bottom ruffle in place, while you lift the other ruffles.
Do the same thing for the next two ruffles.
When you get to the last ruffle, you start by sewing the side of the trim to the shirt. You had pinned it down with the edge folded under, so sew through both layers.
(Matching up with the seam on the shoulder.) Then, just follow the neckline.
Finish up by attaching the other end of the trim to the other shoulder like described in the previous step.
Enjoy your new shirt!
