So, I bought a jersey dress awhile ago, which never fit right, so I deconstructed it into two shirts! The first one is the cowl-neck top of the dress, but underneath that was a grey undershirt, and I had lots of extra fabric. I've been drooling over all the shirts at J Crew with the deconstructed ruffled necks for awhile, so I made this:
(shown with my first-ever jeans to jean skirt project!)
I lengthened the shirt with some of the extra fabric, and made the ruffles with the extra fabric over strips of grey taffeta to give it structure and let a little shiny come through sometimes.
Close up of the ruffles:
I'm pretty excited! I didn't finish the edges of the ruffles, so it'll be fun to see how it changes over time and gets more unfinished looking.
