I’ve been longing for a classic quintessential striped French T shirt. You know the one. Audrey often wore it.
For Picasso it was a wardrobe staple.
Even the grand dame of fashion, Coco Chanel, embraced its simple perfection.
Walking into the Gap I perused the clearance section and found an entire row of T’s in various colors. The price? $7.99.
The problem was that a tunic on me looks like a tutu on an elephant~ ridiculous. But for the price I wondered if I could alter it. So I selected the navy with white stripes and the white with navy stripes and headed home. I cut 4 inches on the bottom and hemmed the edge. With the now extra fabric I thought I would add a ruffle detail elsewhere I also decided to remove the pocket.
Gathering the fabric I created a ruffle detail on each sleeve of the navy top.
Ah, a much better look for me.
Of course you saw the white version on last Sunday’s post.
They’re a bit of Ooh la la for an Ooh la like price.
What have you transformed?
