Okay ladies, you need to go out and buy some turtlenecks while they are on clearance! You will love them for summer. Just cut the sleaves off so you have a tank top and plenty of fabric left to embelish it.
Ugh, I hate to even think of turtlenecks! but I bought this one knowing that I was going to transform it into something great.
haha, it is so unflaterring..funny thing is, if I would have tried it on in the store I probably wouldn't have bought it because it was soooo unflattering. But look what I did!!!
I never imagined it would turn out this cute!
First thing I did was cut off the neck, then I cut the sleeves off and used them as the ruffles!
I always like to use my free motion foot when attaching the ruffles. My walking foot is way to big and a regular foot smashes the ruffles and doesn't keep them even. I do have a ruffle foot but don't know how to use it.
Taaa Daaa! It's so springy!! It's still cold outside so my pix is taken inside and the color is not quite right on my camera, it's such a cute spring yellow.
As you can see in the pix I kept some of the sleeves (my arms are chubby) and I just gathered them up. Also I sewed a little elastic using the zigzag stitch around the waist to give it an empire waist look. I wish I would have taken pictures of those details I just don't have much patience. I like to just "get 'er done"!
