DIY ruffle shirt tutorial
Remember the cute shirt I made my daughter a while ago? Here is the step by step tutorial!
The supplies you need for this project are: a sewing machine, scissors, and two matching t-shirts.
Sew a loose, straight stitch on the top half of sleeves (the part that will be seen when the wearer's arms are down), about 1/2 inch from the recently-cut edge of both sleeves.
Sew gathers in place (by sewing over the entire length of the previous stitch with a nice, tight straight stitch...be sure to back-stitch the ends so it doesn't unravel).
Cut a long strip from the middle of the second t-shirt
Sew a loose, straight stitch down middle of the strip
Pull thread to gather and ruffle
Pin the ruffle to the front of the shirt in a random pattern. Sew along the middle of ruffle to attach it to the shirt.
