I wanted to fancy up a t-shirt with a somewhat vintage feel and created this for $2 using only a pair of scissors - no sewing required! (1st picture is bow tied onel second picture is bow tied twice).
- Roll of 6 inch wide tulle (Purchased at Dollar Tree $1 - found in the bridal section)
- Seam gauge or ruler
- 1 piece scrap paper
- Pencil or marking chalk
- Safety pin
Using a piece of paper I folded a long triangle with the base being and inch and 1/2 wide and cut it out. Place up against the bound end of the sleeve with the narrowest part at the top and the widest at the bottom and mark.
At the neckline, measure 3/4 of an inch down and mark all the way around. Mark the center front and back on the shirt. One inch from each mark will be where you want to start your 2 inch markings.
From the 3/4 inch mark, measure two inches down and mark all the way around at two inch intervals.
Make cuts where marked. I found it easiest to fold the fabric in half on the line marked and begin the cut. Repeats all the way around the neckline and on the sleeves.
