Summer Ruffles

Added Sep 10, 2009

by corduroycoat

Portland, Oregon...






A quick top based on the tutorial by Rae on Sew, Mama, Sew!. Super fast and easy, and I love any project where you get to draft your own pattern! I also made a second one in knit, out of old cotton t-shirts. I left out the ruffles on the second one.

Material Notes

Two pieces of remnant cotton in beautiful vintage prints. Two old t-shirts for the knit version.




Garment Type
Beach, Casual, Romantic, Vintage

    Great Job!!! :) I’ve been wanting to try this shirt for quite some time now but I never seem to get around to it. I love the idea of using old tees to make a knit version. It looks so comfy. I really have to make it now!!

    i saw this as your avatar and I had to come comment because I made the same shirt a couple months ago. Yours turned out WAY better and is actually wearable. Great job. both are really cute.

    Really cute – thanks for the link – printed my instructions! :) Your knit version gives me an idea for a t-shirt restyle I have been trying to figure out! Thanks again!

    great job! looks like a good one for me to try, maybe with some of my boyfriend’s old t-shirts… I’m in the practicing stage of making things!

    This reminds me of the 6022 – Jocelyn pattern but better. Thanks for the link. Nice job.
