Spice it up

If you have a plain tshirt- adding a ruffle to the front can spice it up a bit.  I love shirt makeovers because instead of having to buy a new shirt, you can transform one you already have.  If any of you give it a try, I would LOVE to see what you come up with :)

To do this shirt, I took a white piece of cotton fabric, about 2 inches wide and serged the edges.  
Then I pinned it doubling over each other in a pleated sort of form (this is where you can get creative).  Next, I sewed a straight line right down the middle and pressed it really good afterwards.  You could also just sew a ruffle right down the middle too, or you could wind it around and make a flower to sew onto your tshirt.  Seriously, the possibilities are endless! Have fun with all your plain T's and don't forget to show us what you come up with!!!

I love your ideas! I guess I need to learn how to sew.... :) Plus you are much more talented with the self-timer than I am. :)

BTW, I left you a surprise on my blog!

What a great way to repurpose a shirt sitting in the back of your closet!
