Big Bow T-shirt-- Refashion

The inspiration:
I found this over at Ruby Murray and had to try it for my self! It was getting pinned all over pinterest and I was finally able to find a tutorial. Ruby's is great, so I don't really think I need to make my own. Here's a few pictures of my version though!

The long sleeve shirt I got from a thrift store for $1.75.

YAY!! A beautiful big bow!

I decided to pin the bows onto the shoulders instead of sewing them. Ruffles tend to get weird and flopping once they go through the wash and dryer, so I figure I'll just take the bows off whenever I need to wash it. I pinned the bows a little above where the sleeve meets the rest of the shirt.

I think it turned out pretty well! Especially for my first T-shirt refashion!


  1. Love your version, thanks so much for featuring my tutorial. Great idea with pinning the bows, I have to fluff mine up after each wash!!

    Good luck with the blog you're off to a great start :)
