***Have you entered this week's BOY/GIRL embroidered shirts giveaway yet!? Be sure to do so by Saturday March 24th, 2012 at 10 am!***
professional photographer, and asked her to snap some quick shots of me in it! We actually forgot that I shoot in JPEG because I am lame, so it's killing JeeJee that her RAW images look so dark in my editing, but it's okay, right... Thanks, Jee Jee for taking my pictures!!!
SMASHWORKS did the exact same tutorial, I had in my mind to do already! She actually used a men's dress shirt.
Want to make this shirt from a women's button down?
Let's do it!
First I turned my shirt inside out and laid it flat.
Now, since I was naptime crafting and I needed this project to be quick, I did NOT create my own matching strings. SMASHWORKS actually talks more in detail about that, so use her tutorial if you want to do that! I actually used pre-packaged bias tape in red. I folded the ends under and sewed the sides together!
My bias trim was about 45'' long. I wish I had made it 50'', so my bow could have been a little bigger! If you want no bow, do less!
Attach a safety pin and thread it through your casings. Use two bias tapes if you want two bows or one longer one for just one bow on the side.
Hope you enjoy'd that! Have a great weekend!
