Ruffled Rose Tee Shirt



Embellish a simple tee shirt with rose ruffles for a new fashionable look that's fun and timeless.  This Ruffled Rose Tee Shirt tutorial from Fiskars shows you how to take two plain tee shirts and transform them into something fun and sassy!  This is an easy craft for beginning sewists, and is a fun way for teens and young adults to experiment in making their own clothing.  You could also add these ruffled roses to purses, scarves, and hats to create a fun embellishment that's easy to make and show off!

ruffled rose tee


  • 45mm Comfort Grip Rotary Cutter
  • 24" x 36" Cutting Mat
  • Sew Taxi
  • Softgrip® Razor-edge Scissors (8")
  • 2 tee shirts
  • Sewing machine and supplies



  1. One tip I have for purchasing tees to cut up for embellishing is choose the largest size shirt available. They are usually all the same price, so maximize the material you are getting. Here I used an XL men's shirt instead of the same size tee I bought to embellish.
  2. Here I used a Rotary Cutter and Acrylic Ruler on a Cutting Mat to easily cut lots of strips of white tee. I ran each strip through my sewing machine with a regular running stitch without back-stitching at the beginning or end, then pulled one string from the strip to gently ruffle. Pin them around the shirt in spirals and machine-stitch through each strip to secure.
