Ruffle tee

A couple of weeks ago I was at Target, my favourite place to kill an hour, and came across these t-shirts for $5. I picked up two in my size (one for my sister) and another in XL. I had seen this post awhile back and was really inspired by it and wanted to try my hand at embellishing. After laying out the shirts and trying to decide what to do I just grabbed the scissors and plunged in. It was kind of weird cutting up a perfectly good t-shirt but after some cutting, some ruffling, and some sewing, I came out with this.
This picture was taken at kind of a strange angle. I'm not sure if you can tell that I added ruffle to only one side of the shoulder. The ruffles make an otherwise boring t-shirt a little bit more fun and I can wear it to work with a cardigan. For $15 I made one ruffle shirt for myself and will gift the other one to my sister.

You did a great job I love the ruffles on the shirt. I bet to buy a shirt like that in the store it would cost more then what it cost to make it
