Turtleneck to Ruffled T-Shirt {Tutorial}


As I mentioned in this post, I love ruffled t-shirts! It's just that I don't see many of them in the store that I like. I met up with a friend today and we were talking about how we love t-shirts, but they aren't long enough or cute enough. Then, just a couple hours later, I was at the mall with Hubs and we went in JCPenney. I just happened to find a whole bunch of turtlenecks that were clearanced for $2 each, so I picked one up. I realized right off the bat that the quality was really nice and also that it was longer than a regular t-shirt. And then it struck me...for $2, I can attempt to make a ruffled t-shirt out of these. So, I bought two. I have to say, I love the finished result. And Hubs was very surprised at how nice it looks! {He was skeptical when I told him my plans.} Oh, and the thing about using a turtleneck - the 'after' neckline is modest and isn't low cut like most t-shirts! I love that!
Here's the How-To:












If you make your own, I'd love to see a pic!

I'm linking up to these parties!
