Did you miss me?
I know, I have been quiet lately...so much to be busy with!
I have been into my paper scrap booking, and I got my sewing machine fixed and was itching to use it! So I bought some really cheap tops for R30 each (or $4 )
and they were quite long, So I cut about 10-15cm off the bottom of each one and sewed different ruffles onto each of them...so quick, so easy and something that costs about R180-R200 ($24-$27) only cost me R30 ($4)!!
A green one...
A pink one with front ruffles and a big flower just because!
And a cream one with a few ruffles along the neck line.
And then I bought some plain Tee's for my little girl and sewed a piece of fabric on the bottom and some lace and vola-she had a new dress! I should of taken a photo of her in it as she wore it on the weekend, and she looked so sweet! Will soon!
By the way for the ruffles, it's quite easy. If the shirt is quite long, put it on and measure where you want it to sit, then add on an extra 3cm for the hem allowance and then cut off the remainder. Then cut the piece along the seams, opening it up to be two pieces of fabric now.
Then cut off the seams (side and bottom). Then all you do is cut 1.5cm strips length ways. Pin onto your shirt and sew!
