Shirt Refashion

Last spring I was cleaning out my closet and came upon a shirt from Ann Taylor that I no longer wore because it was too short. I had been seeing all sorts of cardigan refashion posts and decided to give it a try. It only took about 30 minutes and it gave new life to a shirt that would have been tossed. My top was created based on this tutorial.


The top began as a V-neck. I cut straight down the center front of the shirt, making sure to only cut the top layer. Next, I took another white tshirt from the donation pile and cut two 2.5 inch wide strips long enough to stretch from the top of the shirt to the bottom once ruffled. I ruffled each strip and sewed it on to the shirt...and I was done!
