I am 27 weeks pregnant and decided that my XL tees needed a more feminine look. So here are my firts projects, nothing fancy but a lot of fun!

Thanks!
mmusickangel21205, to make the flower: you make a spiral cut, then you gather one edge and sew the center on to the garment.

whimsy10510 , to make the drawstring casing, you need to alter the sides like this: Turn the tee inside out. Cut vertically up each side, from the bottom to the armhole. Then sew the cut edges together again using a straight stitch 1 " from the side, the inside of the tee still facing you. Pin flat the seam allowance and sew along the outer edges to create 2 "tubes". Thread one string up one tube and down the other one. Turn the tee right side out and pull  the 2 ends of the drawstrings. Done!
