I have so many huge souvenir t-shirts which I have never worn and kept for years and years some even more than a decade. Tongue

Today, I finally did something about one of them. Cheesy

This was what I had a Stanford t shirt I got from work many years ago which Ive never worn because the shoulders were way too big, sleeves too long and the neckline was ridiculously tight.

I saw this tutorial http://obsessivelystitching.blogspot.com/2009/08/dollar-store-shirt-to-peasant-top.html online and decided to give my t-shirt a makeover. I tried sewing it for 2 days with my Brother BM 3600 sewing machine. It didnt work. My Brother sewing machine just wouldnt shirr! What a POS! I was so annoyed. Then today, I decided to give it a try on my moms old antique Flying Man sewing machine and it shirred beautifully. HURRAY FOR ANTIQUE SEWING MACHINES!!!!

I have a pile of t-shirts waiting to be refashioned now! Smiley SmileySmiley Do you think I can wear them out? LOL.

This is so cute. Smiley I also have trouble with shirring on my Brother machine (LS-1217), so I feel your pain.

That is super cute! Great idea, I've not seen that done with a t-shirt like that before. Gives it a little flirty, feminine look! Nice job.

How cute!  I have a huge plain navy blue t-shirt I would love to try this with.
Thank you for the inspiration.

Bless you SkyyAngel!  I thought I was the only person on craftster that owned the Brother LS-1217.  It's good to know there's someone else out there plugging away on a base model machine...

 Kiss *blushes* Well, actually I just got a MAJOR upgrade. :O My Brother was running rough since I've had it sew all manner of things for about 12 years now with no actual maintenance. I was going to take it in to my authorized fixing place nearby but they went out of business and closed up shop like a week prior. The closest place is now an hour away and I'm not sure how much it would be to fix it.

Soooo... my mother bought me a Husqvarna Viking Designer Topaz 30 as a graduation gift. <3  Cheesy

I followed the tutorial, so mine came out as more of an off the shoulder version. I noticed that yours has the sleeves cut differently than what the tutorial shows, so I am going to try it again. But I still like this one. It will be cute with a tank top under it. And this shirt has hung in my closet unworn for years. I think it will get a little wear now.
Thanks for the idea!

My husband liked the first one so much that he went and raided his closet for t shirts for me to redo.
So now I have a one of a kind Cowboys top and a super cute skully.
