I took apart a blouse that had a gathered collar and ruffled sleeves, and made it into a tube top with an elastic band.
this is a variation of my beach-dress-turned-skirt project. It has been really fun! and not to mention beneficial for my wardrobe, since the original pieces were hand-me-downs.
i did a sorta “tutorial” on my blog
The fabric was a little stretchy, so it was a little tricky when pinning them together before sewing. The fabric tends to move around a lot when i’m sewing on the machine.
