4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Ruffle t-shirt recon on: June 01, 2009 07:14:32 AM
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.

Thanks for the compliments, everyone! Smiley

MareMare, I just free-handed cut the circles. They're actually a little uneven, which is OK with me. Smiley

Thanks so much for all the kind words!  Grin

I'm wondering how you burned the edges of the taffeta without setting the whole flower on fire?

I cut all the circles out, and then lit a tea candle, and held the edges of the circle up to the candle as I rotated it, pretty quickly (so 20 seconds or so for each circle). I definitely lit a few on fire and was glad I had water handy!

I'm confused by this....it looks "unfinished" to me....

Thanks for the constructive criticism! Smiley I was very much going for a deconstructed, unfinished look, so I'm happy with how it turned out. Smiley

Thanks guys! Smiley

Where did you find the houndstooth pattern?

I drafted it myself--it's very easy! Each "tooth" is one stitch, then three, then three, then one. I'll try drawing it up later, but you should be able to figure it out too!
