onto my DIY project for this week:
1. Cut five of 2″ thick strips from the tank top. 2. mark where you want the flower to be. 3. sew the strips in stitch length 5. 4. it should look like this. 5. pull just one of the two strings while pulling the fabric the opposite way. 6. it should ruffle like this. 7. place the ruffle on top of the shirt and pin it. then sew it on regular stitch length 2.5. 7. repeat again by placing the ruffle strip, pinning it, then sewing. 8. continue until the top part is covered. the middle part, you sew it in a little circle for the flower effect. 9. sew the ends by the neckline so it’s a clean seam. the left side isn’t finished, the right side is. 10. the inside of the shirt should look like this. 11. iron on medium setting with another fabric over it to protect the silk fabric from burning. *12. I also tailored the top into a plain long gray top. You are now DONE!!!
