Upcycled Ruffle Shirt

By:

Cutting up old t shirts is a stylish way to stretch your wardrobe. This upcycled ruffle shirt from I Love to Create is an easy no-sew project for a fashionista, featuring beautiful rhinestones.

Upcycled Ruffle Shirt

Materials:

  • Aleene's® Fabric Fusion® Permanent Dry Cleanable Fabric Adhesive
  • Tulip® Fashion Form™
  • Tulip® Glam-It-Up!™ Fashion Art Tweezers™
  • Tulip® Cordless Heat Setting Tool™
  • Tulip® Glam-It-Up!™ Iron-On Crystals™: 23123 300 Clear Pack
  • Clothes pins
  • 1 white T-shirt, cut into six 18” strips
  • White scoop or V-neck women’s blouse
  • Scissors
     

Instructions:

  1. Fold each strip of the T-shirt strip lengthwise and cut the ends to make an oval shape. You want the ends to be pointed. Each strip should look like a long, skinny football. This will give your ruffles a nice shape!
     
  2. Start with one strip and add a drop of Fabric Fusion and fold the fabric over to make a ruffle. Use a clothespin to hold in place. Do this all the way down the strip. Continue with other strips. You can remove clothespins from strips after about 10 minutes.

  3. Insert the Fashion Form inside the top. Set out the strips along the neckline the way you want them. Starting at the top of the shoulder, set down one strip midway between the shoulder and collarbone, this will be the first layer of the ruffles. Now do the same on the other side. Add the second and third strips closer in so you have a graduated, layered ruffled look. Make sure the strips drape loosely down the center of the blouse.
     
  4. Make sure you like how it looks, and then remove the top two strips. Apply drops of Fabric Fusion just under the first strip and use the clothespin to secure in place. Wait ten minutes and do the second row, and then the third. If necessary, add drop of glue under a couple of the ruffles down the center to make them look more centered. Let dry and remove clothespins.
     
  5. Trim any excess T-shirt fabric to make your ruffles look balanced.
     
  6. Use the Tweezers and Heat Setting Tool to add crystals.
