Hello, Hello. My name is Kadie and I blog over at Seven Alive all Livin' in a Double Wide. I am really excited to be here today. Jenny is such a fun blogging buddy. It has been a true joy to get to know over the last couple of months. I love the layered look. I wear cardigans or double t-shirts often. It is starting to warm up and in the south that means no more layering. It is to hot to wear anything as thick as a cardigan. I was thinking that if I had a cardigan that was as thin as a t-shirt I might still be able to wear it in the summer. Enter the huge bag of clothing my MIL gave me forever ago. It is the same bag that this sweater dress came from.
Ruffle all the strips you cut from the sleeve material. Lovely piles of ruffles with VERY long strings.
Straighten out the ruffles to look the way you want them to. Take care not to break any of the thread. Pin the ruffles on the shirt about half an inch from the cut. Sew down the center of the ruffles.
Cut off all the strings when you are done. That's it. Your done.
And just in case you are wondering yes, you do get funny looks when you hang a shirt in a tree and start taking photos of it. Oh well, at least it was just my in-laws. They already know I'm crazy.
Thanks so much for having me today Jenny. It was a blast.
Isn't that pretty!!! I can think of a ton of shirts that I could update like that! Be sure to visit Kadie's blog, say hello and check out some of her other great projects.
