The now long sleeve Princess shirt that my daughter wore on Sunday. I forgot to take some pictures of her so please excuse the wrinkles and possible stains. I used an older pink tshirt of hers that was too small for the sleeves and ruffles.
I decided to fancy the tshirt up and put a ruffle around the neck. I didn't have much time because my daughter was jumping around my sew maching waiting to put her shirt on, so I didn't pregather the ruffle, I did it just like this.
Very simple and quick!
Once my daughter wore the shirt for the day, I thought the sleeves were a little too short so yesterday, I cut a 2 inch strip from the same pink tshirt and sewed it around the bottom of the arm. I didn't gather it at all, I just stretched the arm of the shirt but did not stretch the strip of fabric and it kind of gathers on its own. I just realized looking at the picture that I need to trim those arm ruffles a bit to even them out. Someone has moved my sewing scissors again so I was just using regular craft scissors.
