Petal Tees Tutorial!
Hooray quick and easy refashions!
- First cut "petal" shapes out of knit scraps in two different sizes. Cut enough to go around your neckline overlapping half of each other. I used 22 each of the large and medium size for my large scoop neck.
- Lay the larger ones across your neckline, overlapping by half. (don't skimp on the overlap, you don't want to see through when it stretches!
- Then lay one smaller petal where the larger petals overlap each other. Pin well.
- And sew on with a narrow zigzag stitch. You're done!
For a little more elegant look, I used the same technique to refashion a sunny yellow tank that Paige had in her closet, using three different shades of yellow nylon Chiffon.
So Paige and I had fun doing a little Crewcuts inspired photo session :o)
The petals almost make little cap sleeves when she wears it alone! But it was a little cool for that today :o)
My original thought was to make a stem coming down from the neckline so it looks like a big flower, but then I thought that might be a bit much. What do you think? To kiddish? Maybe I could try it on one of Paige's?
And thank you so much for all the feedback on the new look to our site! (Good and bad!) I think I'm already on my way to being used to it. It makes me really happy! :o)
Well, take care! I hope things are going well for you all!
