I stumbled across the best idea I have seen in a long time from a blog called, “Stop Staring and Start Sewing,” turning an inexpensive t-shirt that I would never, ever wear into a cute top. Can you believe this adorable shirt started life as a unflattering tshirt from dare I say… Walmart?
JonaG also offers a mini tutorial on how to refashion this t-shirt. The only change I would make would be to create buttonholes or use grommets instead of the slits she cut under the chest to gather and tie the center pleat detail. Anyway, I thought it would be good to share this since I am planning to make one eventually.
