Ruffled Shirt Hem
Add a girly touch to your favorite plain t-shirt by creating a Ruffled Shirt Hem from Candace Jedrowicz. Use the stretch and sew technique for this t-shirt transformation. Who knows, you might end up adding a fun hem to all of your old, boring t-shirts.
- Sewing machine
I wanted to take off several inches, so I put the bottom of the uncut shirt on the sewing machine.You can mark the length if you want.Set your machine on a stretch stitch, medium tension with stitches close together.
Stitch while stretching the fabric from both sides. I stitched in a wavy back and forth motion to create a slightly varied ruffle.
Trim off the bottom of the shirt close to the stitching.
Here is the finished edge.
