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
- Turn your tee inside out, and put it on. Mark or pin the sides so be the right size for you.
- 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.
- Turn the excess right side out, and fold it along the seam. Trim so they’re about 1″ wide when folded.
- Ruffle the folded strips by using a basting stitch along the raw edges, and then gather the strip.
- Pin the ruffles along the shoulder of your t-shirt in a zig-zag pattern, then sew them on.
- 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.
And in just 25 minutes, you’ve got a shirt that’s a little bit fancy, a little bit relaxed, and a little bit amazing.
