Lately I've spent Bryn's naptimes making shirts. Well, embellishing pre-made shirts. I bought this shirt for $9 at H&M, then found similar colored satin at JoAnns for $1. Then cut the satin in strips and sewed flower/circles on. Then I put fray-check on the raw edges, so it wouldn't completely fray (more than it already had).
I found this shirt at Old Navy on clearance for $5. I made the long sleeves into short sleeves, then used the sleeve material to make the ruffle around the neckline. The edges are raw, since the knit won't fray.
I want to experiment and make more of these babies, because (A) They're cheaper than buying already-embellished shirts, and (B) I need more opportunities to strike a pose and do my serious face.
