Hi Lovelies! I hope you are all having a fabulous week so far and that your weekend was awesome good :). Here in Canada, we had a long weekend, so I was basically kidnapped from my blog by my husband! Can't say I minded ;). We are in the process of some exciting home changes. Painting, new furniture, changing room layouts, tiling, so I've been busy! But so, sooo happy to finally be making my beautiful little house feel more like home!
Anyway, I have quite a bit of tutes coming your way because, well, I may have been blog-napped but I still got my craft on!
Today, I will show you how to make this (please ignore my awkward faces, I am TERRIBLE at this picture thang!):
From two tees you probably already have in your closet :)
YOU WILL NEED:
- two tees (in different colours)
- Cotton fabric
- sewing machine
- about 30 minutes :)
HERE WE GO!
*please note, this tute (and pics) were done at night as picture quality may not be the best, but the content works just as well :)
One shirt should be a LOT bigger than the other for this particular look.
You can leave it longer if you'd like. For this empire waisted shirt, I had to shorten it.
If you do NOT know how to ruffle, I have a tutorial HERE.
1. Place ruffled edge next to top part of tee, and slowly and carefully pull at ruffles to make it as wide as the tee, as in Step 2.
Now for the bow...
Again, please ignore my ridiculous pics and bug-like sunglasses, I was channelling my inner insect, apparently.
But honest, you guys, I rarely wear jeans and tees in the summer because I LOVE summer dresses. They make me feel so pretty. But I have to tell you, I felt SO (as in SOOOO) pretty in this tee! It hides all the bad mommy belly spots and highlights, well, only the good :). The bow felt uber flirty and feminine, and I was crazy for the colours, they remind me so much of the ocean and beach. And I loove the beach. :) Even hubs was pretty crazy about it. Anyway, all I'm saying is that for basically NO MONEY and only 30 minutes, I got a shirt that has become my FAVOURITE. Not bad, I say :)
Technically, this was inspired by this Anthro top ($48):
But I felt all that loose fabric might make me feel like a tent, so I changed it up and made it my own. I kinna like mine better *blush* was that a terrible thing to say? Oh well, it's true :) I could replicate that one if anyone is interested though...anyone? Let me know in the comments!
Anyway, I LOVE IT :) And I hope you do too!
Again, I'm here to answer any question. And remember...non is too small :) And also, you can find this in the tutes tab...along with many more :) ENJOY!
THESE great parties!
