A cute spin on an otherwise bland t-shirt
Want to learn how to make it? Ok then, here's what you'll need:
1 T-shirt that is your size
1 3 inch wide by 25 inch long piece of fabric
coordinating thread, sewing machine, etc
Take your fabric and fold one short end under to the wrong side. Place this end at the neckline, pin in place.
Start sewing about 1/4 inch from the edge of the fabric from the neckline down. Gather the fabric into ruffles as you stitch going all the way down to the other unpinned end using a straight stitch and making sure to backstitch your beginnings and ends! Right before you get to the unpinned short end make sure to fold that end under before you stitch it in place! I did about 6 rows of stitches and tried to evenly space them out through the fabric. I also left both long edges alone and did not fold them under with a hem. I like the frayed look the fabric gives the t-shirt and I think it adds a bit of edginess to it too!

That's it!! After you have finished your rows cut all loose ends of your sewing thread and wear that beauty out on the town...or in my case, to my littles music class!!
The end product!
A nice ruffly option for a plain grey t-shirt!
