Day 9: Long-Sleeve to Bow-Sleeve Tee Refashion

I am a huge fan of tee shirt make-overs.  There are what seems like a million great ones out there on the internet.  I've tried a few and they're fun because tee shirts are pretty forgiving.  The fabric stretches {obviously}and it doesn't fray.  Also, they're pretty inexpensive -- especially at the thrift store -- so if you mess up it's not a big deal.  My project for today is one of my all-time favorite pins.

It's pretty and girly and a little bit unique.  I couldn't decide if I would be able to pull it off, but I knew my daughter could rock it so I made one for her.  The tutorial over at Sew What's New is absolutely fantastic.  I whipped it up in like 30 minutes tops.  I didn't even have to break out the sewing machine because the whole refashion is done by hand.  Sydney LOVES it!

sn't that just the cutest thing ever?!  The shirt's not too bad either.  {tee hee} I was a little bit jealous of how cute it turned out so I dug through my stuff and found a tee shirt for myself.  People always tell Sis and I that we look alike.  We might as well dress alike, too.  Right?  I'm just lucky her friends think I'm cool so she is OK with me pulling crap like that.  On a side note -- isn't Sis's new haircut so cute?!  We can curl it {which I LOVE} or flat-iron it, but it looks just as good {in a different way} just wash-and-go. 

Come back tomorrow for another tee shirt.  This time the boys are getting in on the action!


  1. Sydney is GORGEOUS! And I love the shirt as well. :] Also, her hair makes me want to chop my hair off but I'm trying to grow mine out too. So I'll try really hard to refrain. Hahaha. We'll see how much longer I'll last!

  2. Love the hair cut! Who did it? (I'm in the Stake and have been stalking your blog for years :)

  3. She had it cut at the Regis salon at Chandler Fashion Center. They did a really great job and she loves it! Come up and say HI sometime -- I'd love to meet you!

  4. Thanks for the info. I'm going to look them up. (Jody Clawson)
