One of my own: Ruffle Shirt {Mini Tutorial}

In the midst of working on gifts and orders, I managed to finally squeeze in a project for myself (though I still have LOTS to work on)! My last post I wrote about my inspiration for my Ruffled Shrug from Tea Rose Home...which is the most adorable ruffled shirt made from just two identical tees. Well, I finally stumbled across some tee's on sale at Wally World for only $2 each and grabbed two grey ones, perfect for work...and finally this project. I LOVE her ruffled shirt and have been dying to make one ever since I saw her idea many months ago!

Here is what I started off with...but two tees of course. 


Her tutorial is very helpful, so no need to repeat what she did perfectly...and best of all it took no time to make! The only difference I made with mine was that I turned my tee into a tank. Much more comfortable for the office and easier to throw a cardigan or jacket over :) 


And here is the final product!





Thank you so much Sachiko for this simple but super cute idea. 
By the way, she has over 140 comments on this little beauty...and no wonder why! :)

KateB said...

wow and to think they are charging like $ 25 and up for these in store..thanks for the link!

Anngela said...

@KateB--A co-worker asked me where I purchased this shirt and for how much. Once I told her that I made it she was very surprised! This just goes to show that any $4 creation CAN look just as good as a $25+ shirt from the mall!! :)

Thank you all for the feedback...hope your new ruffle shirts turn out wonderfully!! xoxo

Little Sis and I saw this post this weekend. She loved it, and couldn't believe you made it yourself. She's 15, so too "busy" to do it herself, so I'm thinking it'll be a great Christmas gift!
