Ever since I’ve seen this top from Jcrew, I have been dying to make it. I particularly made this one for fourth of July, hence the vintage star patterned fabric. And you would be surprised at how simple and straight forward to make. Its especially helpful when you use a deconstructed top – If you have a top/pants/coat/ etc that fits great but you don’t love anymore….stop before you donate! Seam rip or cut along the seams to take the top apart and turn into a pattern. Like you can see in the video below. If you are wondering what kind of fabric to use….I liked a medium stiffness so the ruffle sticks out in a light or medium weight of cotton or knit. I think the jcrew shirt is a medium knit fabric and the ruffle isn’t hemmed.
