When I first tried this on for my husband, he said “Wow. You made yourself a Puffy Shirt.” That is this shirt’s true and rightful name–I just put “Cascade Ruffle Front” on the tutorial because it sounded more searchable. Besides Seinfeld, I saw this shirt first at Jcrew, but have since seen it surface other places. This took me just over an hour to whip up, and I bought the fabric for $2.25 (a yard and a half) at Hancock’s in their bargain fabric section. Definitely my new go-to shirt.
See the Puffy Shirt Tutorial below!
PLEASE don’t judge me for my photo shoots. I really was talking to my mom on the phone. I had to do it sometime (take these pictures of course). Modeling for these photos was the WwwwwwwwWORST part of doing all this. Ughg. So, sorry..
Before you start this tutorial you’ll need to cut out 4-5 strips of fabric (the same as your t-shirt fabric…or not, whatever you want) that are cut in a descending size i.e. 3 inches by 17 inches, 3 X 15, 3 X 13, 3 X 11, 3 X 9.
Hope you dig! May your ruffles be the puffiest of all!
