What I did Today

I've been wanting some new clothes for way too long now but since I don't exactly have the money to buy a new wardrobe, I've been slowly redoing the clothes I have. A few are newer, like this shirt. I bought 2 basic crewneck shirts from Kohls a while back with a '10 off $10 or more' coupon. I also bought another $5 shirt so my total was right around $5 for all three! I purposely bought two shirts in the same color with the intention of using one to embellish the other. I finally got around to doing it today. Here's how it turned out:

I didn't copy this from anything but I realize the design is far from original. I really like the ruffly look right now!

I only messed up about 37 times but hey, it's not being judged or anything! ...Right?? Stretch fabrics are definitely harder to work with than regular cotton. I would love to add some shirts to our Etsy shop eventually but I have a lot of practicing to do before I can make something worth buying! With knit fabric anyways.
This was a pretty quick project (even for me!) and I am already itching to make something else!

I think I already saw it on FB, but I still think this is a fun shirt!
