Refashioned with ruffles: long-sleeved shirt

I still love ruffles. I'm secretly afraid that one day I'll wake up and realize they are suddenly out of fashion, but until that time I'll continue to ruffle.

I wanted something more for this ordinary white long sleeved tshirt:

So I cut up a cream t-shirt I already had, into strips, and ruffled away.

This is how it turned out:
I wanted to make the neck line a little different, so I ruffled both edges of the top strip. I got the idea from MadebyLex.

I like the cascading ruffles because it draws the eye down, which breaks up the bust line of a plain long sleeved shirt.

  1. I am loving your blog! I originally found it looking for info on how to alter a shirt and make it bigger. I picked your page from the Google list because my name is Shannon too, but I started looking at your other stuff and love your sense of style. I checked out the MadebyLex site and think your shirt is much prettier and the craftsmanship looks more refined. Excellent stuff!
