I bought this shirt because I loved the gray stripes of this shirt. I originally thought it would make a fun pencil skirt….but when I thought of this project—This shirt popped up in my head. Good thing I hoardered it  for a year. before   before of sewing project To start…I snip off the sleeve and the neck. cut off sleeves I knew I had to take in the sides because my daughter is a skinny minny. So I had her put it on and measured about 3 inches in and sewed it up and snipped off the extra.  hem sides After I had it fitting how I wanted I hemmed the sleeves and collar. hem sleeves Time to work on the fringe. I wanted the fringe to hang pretty long (which is why I started with such a big shirt.) So I trimmed off just the hem. (if it’s too long you can trim off more)  cut off hem
I snipped 1/2 inch pieces halfway up the shirt add fringe Then you are going to take each strip and pull on it. Pulling it is going to cause it to curl. make a fringe shirt

You can actually leave it as is… or take it one step further and add some knots. I knotted two pieces together all along the top. Then added another knot using the left string from the left knot and the right string from the right knot.

Then you decorate the shirt however you want! Heat transfer vinyl or even paint! You can see how I added some fun tulip fabric paint over on Instagram!
