Refashion #8 Yellow Flowers Tee Tutorial

I recently purchased some discounted t-shirts for more refashions. I only purchased one of the peach colored shirts and made the lace tee, but I bought two yellow shirts to make a tone-on-tone shirt. When I sat down to make the shirt I was at a loss of what to do. Then I remembered this fabulous shirt I had seen on Welcome to the Good Life. I LOVED Sarah's shirt and even had a similar color so I made a similar shirt.

Have you seen Welcome to the Good Life? Sarah has some beautiful shirt refashions and even has a clothing shop called S.T. Collection. Check it out!!

Anyway... I did not take step by step photos of the process because it was pretty simple but I have written directions below.


1. Purchase two shirts of the same color.
2. Cut 1" strips from one shirt the length of the shirt you are going to wear. (I did 7.)
3. Pin the strips vertically on the shirt, and then sew them on with a straight stitch on a machine.
4. Cut more 1" strips to roll up and make a flower. I used 2 strips for each flower. Roll them up to make the rosettes. Sew the flower together after it's rolled.
5. Sew the rosettes on the shirt.




I actually sewed this entire shirt. I didn't use even one drop of glue! That is a first for me!













Thanks Sarah for the inspiration and great idea!
Linking up to these parties! Please take a look!
