I bought an extra man’s green t-shirt for St. Patrick’s Day, but it was a little too bright.  I think the color is more appropriate for the hazy, happy days of summer!  So here’s another ten minute refashion, making a shoulder bows t-shirt.  This gives a little feminine ruffle detail on the shoulder.  This gather-sewing trick can be used in all sorts of different refashions, such as on the sleeves or on the sides to create a little bit of extra detail.  I always use plain t-shirt in order to show off the refashions, but this would look just as nice with a printed t-shirt, maybe even more so.

Fold the seams outward, so that it lays flat, and sew towards the edge.  You are trying to create two “tubes.”
