T-shirt recon

In my last post I mentioned buying Moo a t-shirt at the Stitches & Craft show. Mollie liked the print as did I, but we both disliked the boxy look of the t-shirt. Thanks to the wonderful Teri's suggestion we now have...
shirt recon


Mollie loves the new style of her shirt and I think it looks much better on her.

I basically followed the tute, but I also unpicked the hem to give the shirt a bit more length and to add a lettuce hem. I really like the red thread contrast on the rolled hems.

Sara this is soooo much better than the original - I just looked at that tute and it's great - it does look really sinple to follow.

Awesome!
Thanks so much for sharing this - I tried it last night on an old post-maternity shirt, and I can't believe what a difference it makes!
Took half an hour, and I'd never done shirring before.
Unfortunately I probably won't be wearing it as I cut it crooked and that will annoy me...doh! But will be doing another soon with a little more care :-)

that is so neat what you did, it totally changes the whole look of the t-shirt, makes it more dressy.
