I took a collared, short sleeve shirt, cut around the neck ( U shaped) and cut off the sleeves. I cut the left over sleeves in to four 2in strips and overlapped all around the bottom of the shirt to make it ruffled. I took additional left over material strips and sewed all around the neck and sleeves. I took another strip of material, pulled the back of the shirt together and sewed the strip together, leaving the back of the shirt a racer back.
The second image is the exact style of shirt I used
