Layered Tee minus the Layers

First of all, this is more of an idea-giver than a tutorial.  I promise to be better about more thorough tutorials, with lost of pictures, but this one seemed pretty simple.

I love the look of layers, but I hate wearing five hundred shirts.  On this shirt I sewed in a mock tank top.  I just took a V-shaped piece of fabric and sewed it in.  Then I added a little tab with a button so I could gather up the tank.  Then I added a ruffle around the edge.  Tadaaahhhh!

You might be happy to know that I am also getting better at taking pictures of myself in the mirror.  That way you don't have to wonder if I have a wandering eye.  That first shoot was pretty bad.  AND...I even did my hair for all of you.  I know - you're touched.   
Happy sewing!


  1. Nice shirt! I'm relieved to know that you do not have a wondering eye. I would say you have an "eye" for sewing.

  2. Cute shirt and a good idea.

    Love this shirt idea! And i just found your blog and LOVE it! I have 3 boys so keep the boy ideas coming as they are hard to find! I am linking this and introducing you on my blog! I grabbed a button and am following!

  4. So I love the top but I am tall so how do you find shirts long enough?
