I am OBSESSED with this shirt. I saw one like this in JCrew last year and it was a small fortune for a t-shirt…let’s get real.
So now, you can make your own JCrew knock-off
Flutter Flower Shirt.
It’s super simple and requires hardly an materials!
Time to get fluttering!
Two matching t-shirts
Cut small strips into B shapes.
Open Bs to expose petals.
Stack open Bs with centers on top of each other. Vary how the Bs are stacked to create texture.
Sew a straight gathering stitch through both open Bs down the center of the top open B.
Pull thread to gather Bs.
Pinch the underside of your now stitched together flower.
Stitch back and forth through the pinch to stabilize the gather.
Repeat to make all your flowers. My shirt has 20 flutter flowers of varying sizes.
Once you have all your flowers, hand stitch them on to your second shirt. Overlap some to create the full look.
WARNING: Hand wash and lay flat to dry. It takes FOR-EV-ER to unwrinkle and iron out each petal if you use the washer and dryer…..not like that happened to me or anything!
