J. Crew- You’re killing me. I can’t keep up with all your fun shirts.
I fell in love with this shirt from J. Crew. I love the colors and I like the randomness of the layers.
So here’s my imitation tutorial. Grab a t shirt. I scored with some great T’s from Forever 21 for under $5.
I got this peachy pink fabric and cut a strip double the length of the neckline and about 2 inches wide.
Fray check the sides.
Beginning at the end of the collar make tucks and pin in place. We’re not going for an exact look here, so make it random.
Tuck in and out, around, up and down(however you want) around the entire colar, pinning in place as you go.
Here’s an up close of how mine looks.
Then you just need to stitch it in place. What I did is stitched it twice, one row about 1/4 of an inch from the ends, and the other row of stitches 1/4 of an inch from the other end.
An up close…
There’s ONE more thing I did that I didn’t photograph. It’s an optional step. It wasn’t looking quite right to me so I got another piece of the same fabric and I put it in the center for a double layer. I only did that piece about 1/2 an inch. I did the same random gathering, just with a small piece. It just made it look more complete.
Here’s my sister wearing it for me.
Isn’t it lovely?
Got more J. Crew inspirations coming this week!!!!
