I hate ruffly tshirts. There! I said it! So, when I found this top for $1, I had no intention of leaving it as-is!
I celebrated St. Patrick’s Day on Saturday, but technically it fell on a Sunday. I couldn’t very well not celebrate on the correct day as well, now could I? I liked the color of this top, but those ruffles had to go!
I used the fabric from the ruffles to make the halter straps for my previous refashion. 🙂
I took my new top in about 1″ on each side…
…but thought it could still use a little something. I reached for a shoulder pad from the day before.
I cut it open and ripped out the foam.
I stitched down the raw edge at the top, pinned it to my new tank, and stitched it down.
And just like that, my new top was ready for a day of excessive merriment in Charleston, SC!
