Hello! Happy Friday, everyone! Today for Simple Project Week I'm sharing this simple circle rosette shirt alteration. (Phew! What a name!)
I was hesitant to share this for Simple Project Week because it is not as quick as some of the other projects, but I loved it so much that I just had to. And technique-wise it is extremely simple-a beginner should have no problem with it! (I hope!)
All you need is a plain tee and some coordinating knit scraps! (Nylon chiffon is optional)
- Cut a bunch of circles in three different sizes and various colors. Use old t-shirt scraps if you have them!
- Pin the circles to your shirt, smallest on top:
- Sew them to your shirt in an X shape.
How easy is that?? I love it with this high waisted skirt I picked up at a thrift store recently:
But more often than not, I'll probably be wearing it like this:
To make it a truly simple and (quick) project, try starting with just a row around the neckline! I didn't think to show a picture of this before I sewed my rosettes on, so please excuse the crude Photoshopped example...you get the idea, right? :o)
Tip: You may want to place them even more close together than I did. When wearing your shirt the design stretches a bit; I thought I'd accommodated for that, but I wish I would have made them a teeny bit closer.
I hope you try it! It's a fun one to do, and I really love mine. :O) Or at least I did until I had to edit a million photos of myself in it and then wonder what the rest of the world will think of it...hmm. :o)
Have a great Friday! Our week of simple projects is almost done! I hope you've enjoyed it-I know I have.
