The Ruffled Gray T

Hello Refashion Co-op. It is getting warmer and warmer. It's warm enough for a T-shirt. At least it is where I am. It is nice to see warm weather. That means all new refashion and sewing possibilities. 

I started with this BIG men's T-shirt. It was just a thin, plain, gray shirt. It needed some kind of change. 

I had already cut off the bottom pieces of this shirt for a past project that didn't work out. I removed the hem. I used the other two strips and attached them to the bottom as a ruffle.

I used elastic to gather up the sides and cut off the sleeves. The side gathers made it very flattering over my mommy tummy. I loved it. 

I also cut off the neck binding so it would match the raw edges of the sleeves and the bottom hem. The shirt is comfortable and looks a little dressier than a plain T.

Thanks for reading, now go make something fun for yourself.
