Ah, the pleasant air of spring…..makes me want to wear my summer dresses. But since it’s not quite warm enough for some of them, I transformed an old t-shirt to make a quick shrug that will ward off the chill until those hot days of summer arrive. It’s so easy, I want to make one in every color!

PS: You can find the tutorial for the dress here.
That is darling! Love the simplicity of it….
Thanks, Mari! I miss you!!!
Great refashion!! I’ve got a Craft Gossip post that links to your tutorial: http://sewing.craftgossip.com/tutorial-10-minute-gathered-t-shirt-shrug/2014/04/19/
Thank you so much, Anne! It’s always exciting to see my tutorials on your site.
That looks adorable!
Thanks, Marilyn. I just got back from the thrift store with a few more t shirts in different colors to make some more of these.
Oh, this is so beautiful !
Thank you, Lucille! These are my favorite colors to wear!
They are very complimentary to you, soft green as well. I have a favourite (made of denim and white, if I recall correctly) but I can’t find it now.
Your blog is very inspiring and just motivates me to clear out my “dumping ground”, setup my machines and start putting my sewing skills, so wonderfully taught to me by my patient Mom to good work on all my hand-me-downs.
I would really like to see your creations when you get started. It’s always so fun to me to see what other people dream up. 🙂 It’s funny you mention soft green. I was just ironing a long soft green thrift store dress that I picked up yesterday. I’m hoping to make a maxi skirt from it today.
Wow, this is incredible!! It doesn’t look like a DIY and is such a practical idea on so many levels.
I hope you’re having a great Easter!
Something About That
Thank you, Jackie! I had fun visiting your blog. You have a wonderful style and look like a super fun person.
My aunt must be on your mailing list because she randomly emailed me this post and said it made her think of me lol! Love it!
That’s great Miche! What’s her name?
Ok, so as a beginner-I’m a little slow, like more than 10 minutes- but I got a request to make another for my sister quick as I was done! Thanks so much for the great ideas!
You are soooo welcome! I’m glad it worked for you! You’ll be faster on the next one and the next one and the next one…. because, if you’re anything like me, you’re gonna want one in every color. 🙂
so clever! Going to look for an old tee to do this with!!
Have fun, Margo!
This is such a cute idea. Some of my sewing students brought in some t-shirts to refashion, and I think this would be a perfect project. Thanks for sharing!
Trish, Thats so cool that you’re inspiring your students to refashion, too. This WOULD be a fun beginner project for them to do. Happy Friday!!!
I like it with the long sleeves-a little more coverage for the spring days. I have a long sleeve grey one in my refashion pile-new idea!
I want to try this! Thanks for your awesome ideas.
You are so welcome, Marianne!
What a clever idea and so cute😀
Do you need to use a loose fitting T?
