DIY: Update Your T-Shirt with a Quick and Easy Off the Shoulder Ruffle


Before you start with all of the Daisy Duke references, and I won’t mention any names…


 I’m telling you,

Gingham is Back!

And it’s back with a vengeance. It’s all over the runways and I love gingham!

I have so many gingham ideas floating around in my head, and I can’t wait to get started on them.

Here is a quick and easy project to get YOU started on a quick and easy summer re-do that I absolutely LOVE!

Just grab a T-shirt that fits you,  some coordinating lightweight fabric, your scissors and click here to see the entire tutorial and get started:

Well, I’m off to the races….

The Kentucky Derby, that is.

I’m headed to the Rialto in downtown Portland for one of the most fun parties of the season!

Check out these hats from the last Kentucky Derby party I attended at the Rialto.

    Darn, I just passed up some gingham fabric at my thrift store! 😦 Maybe it will still be there the next time I go there. Love, love, love this shirt!

    Kewl. I’m going to try this, but not with gingham. You forgot to mention one necessary accessory — a bale of hay 🙂

  3. Cute top! I’ve got a Craft Gossip post scheduled for this afternoon that links to your tutorial: –Anne
