Fancy Tee

Added May 5, 2011

I found this gorgeous jersey knit fabric on sale and in one of my favorite colors so I decided to make a tee shirt. I have too many plain tees and thought that I should dress this one up with rows of ruffles and a little ruffled flower. I used my plain standard tee shirt pattern for it and liked it so much I’m going to do an entire series of fancy shirts made from basic tee patterns. This is the kind of shirt that can look casual with jeans or dressy with special pants or skirts. Click “ruffles” in credits below for the easy instructions.

    What a great way to dress up a tee. Lately Ive been very disappointed with the shirts in my wardrobe because they are all sooooo plain, i can never find the right shirt when it time to “dress up”.

      Kovu – we must have been looking in the same closet! I’ll be posting more options at the end of May when I return from vacation.
