Sewing Tutorial - Tied Boyfriend Shirt

9:18 AM

I LOVE the casual look of a tied shirt over a dress, but HATE the bulky feeling of extra fabric in the back.

This quickie tutorial will help you eliminate the bulk of extra fabric while keeping the cute boyfriend shirt look.

If you have one, start with a shirt you already like.  I like this little pink shrug.  Its a good length for me.

Next you need a plain button down shirt.

Place the shrug over the full length shirt.

  Now cut the excess fabric from the full length shirt.  Be sure to leave tails for tying the shirt.

I finished the edges of the shirt with a zigzag stitch.

That's it!!

I prefer longer ties on my shirts, so I buy oversize shirts when I know that i'll be cutting them down.

I am a large chested woman and prefer a regular bra (instead of a strapless).  When I'm wearing a strapless less, these little tops allow me to wear a regular bra and enjoy full support!
