I made this yesterday in no time flat. I'm a self-taught sewer so I never knew you could get a hem to curl until I saw vegbee's tutorial.

I took an old t-shirt of mine gave it a few snips, made a casing, ruffled the hem, tacked on some ties and voila:

Front:


Back:


I have 5 t's ready to go for similar tops. Yay.

That looks awesome! Well done on the sewing, and your little girl looks very happy with it too.

Very cute.  It looks like you have a very cooperative model.

She's a total camera whore! I have to keep an extra close eye on her at the park or wherever there might be people wanting to take pictures because she'll put herself into ANY picture.

After I took the top picture I told her, "you're such a cheeseball, Bridget" and she told me, "just like you, mama"  Grin What can I say? The kid's got a point.

That rocks - your edge came out much nicer than mine do.  Is that elastic around the top?

Yep. Just made a quick casing.

The other day I whipped up this top:

in the same fashion, but even easier! It was an old tank of mine that had some staining at the top, so I turned it upside down to make the shirt and all I had to do was snip a hole in the hem/seam allowance, feed the elastic through and stitch the hole closed. So easy!

I'm having a ball with the curled hems! Thanks for sharing that info with us!
