T-Shirt Ruffle Re-do

Many thanks to Sachiko over at Tea Rose Home for inspiring my latest sewing obsession--Ruffled T-Shirts! I have made six of them so far, one for myself and the rest for family and friends!

What do I love most about these? They are very forgiving for a beginning sewer.

And though not necessarily vintage, I do find these to be romantic, and of course I am featuring them as I will continue to be blogging about all of my creative adventures here at Vintage Pollyanna.

There are several tutorials over at Tea Rose Home, I myself like Ruffle Shirt Tutorial #2 the best!

Thanks for visiting, and be sure to check out these fabulous Monday Link Parties!

  6. Hi everyone and thanks so much for supporting my new blog! This has been such a pleasure!

  7. where did you buy the t-shirts?

  8. Hi Sara, I purchased them at Old Navy during their essential sale. The shirts were $5 each (regularly $10).

  9. So cute! I love t-shirt refashions and will have to try one of these!

    I noticed my button necklace is one of your August tutorials to try. Awesome! Be sure to stop by and let me know when you have finished. I would love to check it out. And soon I want to do a post about projects others have made using my tutorials (although I only know about three of them).

  10. I love your ruffled tees! Thanks for sharing the tutorial, I haven't found it yet. And, have you clicked over to yet to find all the great tutorials shared over there?


I love your feedback!
