I don't really have a clever intro for this project. But, if you have a long sleeve shirt that you want to transform into something cute and fabulous, this is a good project!
None of this design is original, so out of courtesy, here is the link to the pattern that I used:
Don't feel the need to use the same buttons--I used a variety of silver buttons, varying in shape, size, and texture, and I LOVE how it turned out!
This project took me a total of about 2 hours and I will definitely be wearing this shirt much more often than I did when it was just a plain long-sleeve tee.
Learning how to make ruffles.... who knew it could be so simple?!
Sewing on buttons.
Again, I never took a picture of the final product. Will post tonight with a photo of the completed jeans :-)
