SJP re-deaux top

Added Dec 30, 2009

Inspired by a striped circular ruffle top/dress donned by SJP in Sex and The City, I used 2 t-shirts to create this piece. I cut one of the shirts into strips to create the ruffles and handstitched them in concentric circles on the other. Too cute!

The skirt is a basic gathered skirt with a wide waist band, using heavy Ikea cotton fabric.

      I just bought 2 tops the same (scoop neck 3quarter sleeves black and white stripes). and used one to cut into 2 inch bands. Then gather the bands (still in a loop) and hand stitch into place on the shirt.

      Now go for it!! xx
