Side Tie Shirt~



Ok, so this isn't rocket science and many of you have probably done it, but it's still sewing straight lines, so I figured I could tackle it! It came about after I had been at the grocery store... I had one of my favorite comfy shirts on. It's one of those "baby doll" ones, fits more at the top and gets bigger as it goes down. Waaaaay comfy, not to mention I love anything with polka-dots or stripes! Well, a gal I hadn't seen in quite some time walked up to me..."OOOHHH, it's been so long, I hadn't heard!" Heard what?? I'm thinking... OMG!...She thought I was pregnant!!! I mean, I know I've eaten a few too many snickers lately, but I didn't think I looked like I ate... 4 months worth! Yeah, wasn't wearing this shirt again!! When I got home I took it off, walked by it several times lying on the bed and the light bulb went off! {It's amazing how that happens now that I stared blogging!} Out came the sewing machine!

  Turned it inside out and folded up 4 inches...


Sewed a simple stitch all the way around and left a 2 inch opening of the side...


Threaded the ribbon through the side opening...

 Left enough ribbon out each side to allow for a bow to be tied...


Had to Frey Check the ends...


 Sweet, simple...no longer Prego shirt!!...
