Perhaps you've seen this darling shirt from J.Crew for $29.50.
Here's what you need to make your own (or in my case several) for a fraction of the cost.
Needed: 1 scoop or V- neck t-shirt. These are from Target the Merona brand, regularly $8.99 bought on sale for $6 each
A pattern for your petals in this case, a heart. (My friend Cheri the genius behind this project just "eye-balled" it.) She also had the idea to cut out a star pattern and make a corsage star shirt for the 4th of July.
Buy 1 XXL shirt in a matching color to make your petals. One of these bad boys made petals for 6 shirts and we still had some left over.
Cut out hearts, two at a time if you can. Each shirt took 14-16 hearts for the "corsage". You can do more or less depending on the fullness you want.
You can do this project easily on your own, but it was so much more fun with friends!
Here's Cheri wearing her gray one she had already made. Once again wonderful friends who share their talents and ideas.
Sew on your first heart/petal. *The t-shirt fabric will not fray.* We used a sewing machine but you can do it by hand too. Make 3 stitches front, 3 stitches back and you're done.
Add another heart. The tighter you bunch them together to fuller your corsage will look. Each shirt I did turned out different. Just lay them on there, don't over-think it. You can go back and easily move petals around if you aren't happy with how something looks.
