Snip and sew, J Crew inspired Tee
When I saw this classy sweater in the store window of J Crew, I figured it was worth a shot to try and mimic those, what do you call them, fringes? I can’t knit, so a complete imitation was out of the picture, but maybe something simple in jersey…

To do this, I started cutting up the big T-shirt to resize it. With the left over fabric on the bottom, I cut out two strips of fabric the width of the fitted shirt and the length, a little longer than the fringe length I wanted.
I unfolded the fringe piece and sewed it along both edges to the uncut piece of fabric as shown above. This is so when you attach the fringe to the shirt and the shirt stretches, you don’t see gaping holes to the skin where the fringe stretches.
Finally I cut across the front of the shirt where I want to apply the fringe. Fold the edge in, place the fringe under the folded edge and sew across. Take the bottom part of the shirt, fold the top edge in. Overlay that folded top edge over the bottom of the fringe and sew.
Attach the sleeves, sew down the sides of the shirt as you would normally, hem the bottom, and you’re done!
