How to Restyle a T-Shirt into a Ruffly Cardigancomments (51) February 18th, 2011
Sew at 1/4 inch. Press the seam allowance toward the body, and edgestitch from the right side close to the seam to keep the ruffle from flipping back.
4. Add ruffles to cuffs. Trim off (or rip out) the cuff hems on your tee. Check that the length of your remaining ruffle strip is at least three times the cuff circumference (so that when you cut it in half it will be 1-1/2 times as long as each cuff). If not, you may need to salvage some more scraps or cut your ruffle's width in half. Once you have a strip to use for each cuff, seam the short ends and proceed as with the body ruffle.
That was simple, right? And look how cute!
