Choking shapeless T-shirt fix !

This shirt looked too much like a mans shirt - and I felt like I was being slowly strangled while wearing it - but it's nice and comfortable everywhere else, so I made it more "womanly"

  1. How to make a ruffled top. Altered Neckline Of A T Shirt - Step 1 1

    Start with your t-shirt (I got this one ages ago at a secondhand shop for a couple of dollars) and work out where you want your neck line to be. I put mine on and used a fabric marker in front of a mirror to eyeball it

  2. How to make a ruffled top. Altered Neckline Of A T Shirt - Step 2 2

    Using my Pinking Shears, I cut the neck out and I've chosen to alter the sleeves aswell, so off with them !

  3. How to make a ruffled top. Altered Neckline Of A T Shirt - Step 3 3

    I zigzag stitched around where I'd cut to give it a slightly scolloped and raw looking edge




  4. How to make a ruffled top. Altered Neckline Of A T Shirt - Step 4 4

    I then pinned elastic (I used 6mm Braided Elastic) around the arms and neck - again I eyeballed it to get a slightly ruffled look

It should also state, that at Step 4 I sewed the elastic to the shirt using a straight stitch using my sewing machine. I completely forgot that bit o.O
