If you’ve got 25 minutes and a too-big tee, you’re going to love this Anthropologie inspired t-shirt refashion.

Several years ago my sister came to visit with an amazing t-shirt on. She had found it at Anthropologie and couldn’t believe how lovely it was. I loved it enough to ask her if I could inspect it. So today we’re going to recreate one portion of that shirt. Since it was several years ago, I can’t show you the original though, which is sad. But you’ll like this one anyway. Here’s what we started with. It’s XXL

  1. Turn your tee inside out, and put it on. Mark or pin the sides so be the right size for you.
  2. Sew along the marked lines from the sleeve down to the bottom of the shirt in one continuous seam on both sides. Trim the excess.This tutorial for an anthropologie-inspired t-shirt refashion is so fun
  3. Turn the excess right side out, and fold it along the seam. Trim so they’re about 1″ wide when folded.
  4. Ruffle the folded strips by using a basting stitch along the raw edges, and then gather the strip.This tutorial for an anthropologie-inspired t-shirt refashion is so fun
  5. Pin the ruffles along the shoulder of your t-shirt in a zig-zag pattern, then sew them on.This tutorial for an anthropologie-inspired t-shirt refashion is so fun
  6. You may need to tack a few ruffles in place at the beginning and end and if there are any other areas you feel need more structure.This tutorial for an anthropologie-inspired t-shirt refashion is so fun

  1. Love the refashion but I have a question. If you started with a XXL how do you make the shoulder seams hit at the correct place on the shoulders? I would think the seams would droop off the shoulders? Thanks.

    • Hi Evie, thanks for your comment and question! This particular shirt is supposed to be really tight and close fitting so I didn’t have that issue when taking it in. However, if your shirt did have that problem, you’d need to take the sleeves off, adjust the shoulder width, then reattach the sleeves.
