I found this beautiful idea of transforming a t-shirt into a bolero on the internet and I just had to try it myself.
The instructions follow.

    Wish I had thought of this. Think I may add a tiny dec trim or ribbon down the center of the ruffle. hatlady

    The instructions can be seen, can’t they? I can see them but can anyone else see the pictures of the how-to? Please respond to this.

      I can see the pictures (main). Not when I just wait for them to load, but when I click on a (invisible) miniature on the right. I had to do that a 2 or three times, though.
      The instructions and the pictures in the instructions work perfectly.

    I am sorry for the inconvenience. I tried uploading the images twice – but there is something wrong and they just do not show. I’’ll try to fix it myself or find a BS staff member to do it for me! Hopefully!

      I can see your problem is solved ! I’m having exactly the same problem on my last how-to, and I’d love to know how you managed to fix it :)
