Ruffle Jersey Shirt

I was on J. Crew's website looking through kid's clothes and I saw some cute ruffly girl's shirts and mashed a few together to come up with this one for Evie. I made it out of a women's tee I found at Target for $2 so it's a really thin jersey, which is good for how hot it's been!

I just traced a tank she had that fit her already. Then I cut it out and cut out a three 1.5 inch strips of jersey too.

 I ruffled the strips and sewed them around the neckline and around the arm holes.

Because it was a really cheap tee I made it out of, the ruffles aren't very stiff. It's a little messy now (this is after the first wash) but I actually like it that way!

I'm sorry I've been so terrible about posting this summer! The truth is, I kinda lost my sewing bug. If you remember,  I've been growing a human this summer. See?

Yeah i'm pretty much gigantic! I've got a little less than 3 weeks until my induction date so I hope you will all understand if i'm not posting a ton for the next little bit while I finish this pregnancy and get used to life with 2 kids!

Thanks for sticking with me! Hope you all are having a wonderful week! XOXO
