So I found the idea to take my old plain t-shirts that I don't really like to wear and make them into something I do like to wear on http://elizabethkartchner.blogspot.com/2010/04/diy-fabric-ruffle-tee.html. Lizzy used a new shirt and the same color ruffles but I just used what I had so I didn't even have to spend a penny! It turned out way cute!
I first started by taking a plain t-shirt and some fabric from a tank top I don't wear. I then cut about 1 inch strips from the tank top (I used 6).
I then places the pieces where I wanted them, ruffled them, and pinned.
