DIY: RUFFLE WATERFALL TEE

March 22, 2012

When I passed this fabric at the craft store last week I immediately was intrigued by it.
Ever wonder how to upcycle a perfectly good tee or tank that is stained? 
Well this fabric saved a couple shirts for me! And it takes 10 minutes to do!
Supplies:
Liquid Stitch (Better than hem tape miracle worker)
Ruffle Fabric (Found mine here, but it is sold many places)
 Tee or Tank
One half yard can upcycle 3 shirts! 
Total Cost: $5.00
Instructions:
1) This fabric comes in many different colors at Hobby Lobby. Hunt your closet for the shirt you want to perform plastic surgery on that best matches your fabric color;)
2) Measure your fabric over your tee or tank (I used an old J.Crew tank that was stained in front) and trim a piece in vertical direction of ruffles that measures a couple inches from either side of the shirt. 
3) Place Liquid stitch alongside all edges and let dry for twenty minutes. Trim alongside the top and bottom hems. I left it slightly longer on the bottom for a better waterfall effect. What is great about this fabric is that it is a very soft tee-shirt like material so you don’t have to worry about the edges shredding.
Feel free to email me with questions.
Stay tuned for another fun fashion DIY coming up next week;)
