I had to get rid of the old embellishments first. Here's my tutorial!
|Cut out the old embellishment and traced it onto|
neckline (leaving seam allowance)
of old large cotton t-shirt.
|Cut out the trace portion and sewed it back onto old tee.|
|Cut 2" strips from the blue tee on the bias.|
Then made them into wave shapes!
|Set the sewing machine to largest number and sewed|
a straight stitch through all the strips.
Pull ends of thread to make
|Sewed on ruffles starting from the top and made sure|
the stained parts were covered.
|Also sewed them on the back! :-)|
Hoping this top will last a bit longer. Since it's made from cotton, and I don't bleach my clothes, I think it will stick around in my closet a bit more :-)
