ruffle shirt

I saw this tutorial for making a ruffle shirt and just fell in love with it. I don't have much experience with a sewing machine, but after making this ruffle bag I felt like I could handle a shirt. I can sew a straight line and that's really all this takes. I had two of the cap sleeve layering shirts from Shade in pink and one of them was pretty old and I didn't wear it anymore, so it was perfect for cutting up to make ruffles! This is how my shirt turned out:
I'm loving ruffle shirts under a cardigan right now, and I'm really happy with how this shirt turned out. Sachiko's tutorial is easy to follow and the whole thing only took a couple of hours to do. I also love using t-shirt fabric for ruffles because it doesn't fray so there's no hemming.

Here's Sachiko's shirt
She did 2 flowers and I only did 1, but other than that it's a pretty close match! If you want to a bunch of cute sewing ideas, definitely check out her blog!
