When making your own clothes, you take what fabric you can get. A neighbor and friend gave me TONS of fabric she was clearing out, among which I found this blue knit. The sleeves were supposed to be different–I can’t remember what—but I do remember that they didn’t turn out, and they became little bubble sleeves. I messed up cutting the body, and it turned out more fitted than I originally planned. And I tried to put a facing on this neckline–instead of a band–didn’t like how it looked, and from there was born the braid. This shirt has never been my favorite, but considering it was just one accident after another, it turned out okay.
The tutorial for this is the quickest and dirtiest of all.
Make a really long braid from your fabric scraps.
Tack them on by hand.
Spill applesauce all over it. Yep, I pulled this shirt from the dirty laundry for the picture.
