old shirt, new style

So I followed through on my previous post...I made this shirt yesterday. I was so excited that I thought I'd wear it today, but I think it'll have to wait for warmer weather. I used this should check it out, she has some other super cute ones I am dying to try as well.

Added a ruffle to the collar, I hate the collar on these cap sleeve shirts anyway, they seem floppy and cheap to me so the ruffle was just the right touch.

Next two layers with a gathered piece of fabric

and the final product. I added two more layers and a flower. I think it needs a couple more layers, I feel like they end in an awkward spot. Oh well it's cute.

And a close up of the flower, I had so much fun making this shirt!


  1. OK..Seriously SO cute!!!! I'm gonna make one! I always love all the things you post Dresden!!! I love your flower bag with the big pink flower too!!! You have the best craft posts and Natalie has great food posts...I get all my inspiration from you two!

  2. super cute... and i don't think the layers end weird, but it will be cute with more too :)

  3. So cute! I've got a few shirts that have stains from my sweet baby girls! Great way to upcycle!
