An extra large shirt refashion has been on my to-do list for a while now, and I finally got a hold of a men's shirt several sizes too large for me ($4 at hell-mart), resized it, and used the scraps to make ruffles, a bib, and a fabric bow, then added heart buttons. I found resizing is a lot easier than making a t-shirt because I always seem to mess up on the collar!

Here's the shirt: (I promise the sleeves are even, I'm just standing a bit lopsided)



Close-up (yes I know it's not perfect)


If anyone is interested in how to do it, I posted a tutorial on my blog at http://thelifeoflulubelle.wordpress.com/2011/08/16/how-to-add-ruffles-and-a-bib-to-a-shirt/, but could probably copy it over here as well.

Thanks for looking!

That's really great. I really must find the time to revamp a t-shirt like this. I love the added detail of the heart-shaped buttons.

Nice! My boyfriend has a ton of shirts just waiting to be reconstructed into something cute and feminine. I love this one. Smiley

Wow! This is super nice!
Thank you thank you thank you for sharing the how-to! I've recently thought of trying to pull off a collar like that, and now I'll definitely give it a try.
