Beach Project #3 - {Tee shirt update}

I'm just getting to posting one of my final projects at the beach in March. My niece needed a shirt for their family pictures on the beach and we couldn't find anything to match. The only thing close was a plain adult women's shirt in XS. It fit okay, but it was plain and way too long. I figured if Make it Love it can update shirts I could at least try it as well. A little lose stitch to make a ruffle and rosette and this is the result. (I found instructions for creating a ruffle on Make it Love it, but I can't find it now. She just did an website update so I'm hoping it will show up on her sewing tips page soon so I can post the link here.)

Even though the stitching is far from perfect there is something so satisfying about creating something yourself! Hope this inspires you as well. I'm a very novice sewer so if I can do it anyone can!!

Isn't my niece beautiful! And her photographer Aunt (my sister) did a great job capturing the pictures for me too!

{The headband was another beach project that  was again inspired by Make it and Love it. So easy and fun!}


  1. Great job, Lola! How's the New York trip planning going?

  2. Good work, Laura...I love the updated shirt :)

  3. It's nice to have a crafty neighbor! :)


Thanks for taking the time to comment. They brighten my day. I love each and every one!
