Last fall I grabbed a white tank top and a black t-shirt from the dollar store. The black tee has yet to become fully indoctrinated into Audrey’s wardrobe but the little white tank has and it even has a name. The name it goes by is “The Shirt that Mom Loves but Audrey will Never Wear”. This tank turned out so so so super cute and I really love the romantic look it has. Audrey says that she doesn’t like “all those ruffles”. Hmh. Well on to the shirt.
The idea for the shirt came from this tutorial from Tea Rose Home. I used her basic concept and changed a few things up. I started with two strips of 2 inch wide fabric. I can not remember how long they were 🙁 but I gathered them and sewed one along the front side’s collar. The second one I sewed right beneath it. Both of these strips were sewn onto the tank top with the stitch right in the middle of the fabric. The next 5 strips were each 1 1/2 inches wides and were gathered and then sewn with a 1/4 in. seam onto the tank top, one beneath the other. The last three strips were 3 1/2 inches wide and were also gathered and sewn with a 1/4 in. seam onto the tank similarly. I really liked how the ruffles went all the way down the shirt and were not all the same width. Oh if only Audrey liked it just as much. I made myself one similar to the one from Tea Rose Home and I will definitely have to post that one on a different occasion.
