JCrew has this AWESOME cardigan that I basically love.
But alas, even on final sale it is still $35….and it’s a sweater….in August…..in LA.
Enter the fabulous Scalloped Petal Tee!
(sorry, the white on white makes it hard to photograph!)
T-shirt jersey fabric or second shirt to cut
Optional - Cardstock
Make two circle templates, one slightly larger than the other. Mine were 3.5″ and 3″ inches.
(if you have a better more “sewing sophisticated way you are awesome!)
Cut out circles of jersey and tulle. Cut the tulle circles larger.
Layer tulle circle on top of jersey circle. Fold in half, then fold in half again. Tulle should end up inside the folds of the jersey circle. Vary how you do the last fold so all petals don’t look the same.
Pin petals onto shirt and stitch them down at the points.
(I recommend trying it on with the petals pinned to make sure they lay right once the shirt stretches)
(I tried to add some shadows so you could see the layers better)
There you have it….an awesome JCrew knock of for a fraction of the cost! The shirt was $2.70 (have I mentioned I LOVE Old Navy yet?), the jersey and tulle were $2.45 and I didn’t come close to using all of what I bought.
Beats $35 any day!
Don’t miss the linky party TOMORROW! Link up your awesome t-shirts or get inspired by others!
