Lately it seems my daughter had been getting a lot of too big tee shirts from camp, functions and school. They fit but are a little too big and boxy looking. I wanted to give them a cuter look and then remembered a craft fair from when I was a kid and someone fringing tee shirts.
Well I decided to try it and it came out adorable and now it is retro cute!
This is how I fringed a tee:
First flatten a sleeve so the seem is even and then cut the seam off. Next cut each of the folded ends up to the shoulder seam. Start cutting fringe next up to the seam.
Repeat with second sleeve.
For the bottom, start by making the bottom hem even and cut it off. next fold the tee in half so you can cut through four layers at once. Then decide how long you want the fringe and put something at the stopping point so you will be able to make it even. Cut the fringe.
The shirt is done and can be worn, once it is washed it will have an even better fringed look as each piece with curl together, longways.
