Hello everyone!

This is one of my very few successfull recons. I used this tutorial here: http://www.craftstylish.com/item/39771/how-to-restyle-a-t-shirt-into-a-ruffly-cardigan and it was very easy and quick to do (took about one hour for both on my serger). The whithe one I embellished with some appliqu and added a snap button for closure. These are very comfy to wear and leave lots of room for creative ebellishing!

Thanks for looking and as always - comments are very much appreciated Smiley

thanks : ) I've had some very unpleasant experiences with t-shirt fabric (especially with the really cheap, thin kind) but since I have my serger I love sewing stretchy fabrics! Especially the ruffles are a snap if you have a machine with a differential feed. If you use a regular machine I highly recommend using a ballpoint needle and a suitable stitch (zigzag or stretch-stitch).
