Easy ruffle-front tee, a variation on my tutorial

I am going crazy with these ruffle-front tees!  So easy and fun.  This time I was thinking about J.Crew's ruffle-front tank, which is a little bare for me, but I like the scoopneck, so I used a scoopneck tee.  See the inspiration:
I used the same techniques as in my tuxedo tee tutorial, except I put the ruffles horizontally instead of vertically.  See?
I cut up the sleeve, ruffled the pieces, and interfaced and sewed them on!
I really love this tee, I already wore it last night!

  1. Fabulous! Don't you just love the new J. Crew line with all those ruffles? I was inspired too when I walked into the store a few months ago...not so much by the prices though! I made a shirt this past week too that was inspired by the catalog. http://holy-craft.blogspot.com/2010/01/i-got-inspired-to-try-to-follow-pattern.html I love reading along! You have such fun ideas!
