From the beginning I’ve been a fan of tone on tone clothing. And my color preference is white. Here’s a little tutorial using some scrap fabrics in different tones or textures. You could do this with any shade of shirt and coordinating strips.
First figure out what fabrics you want to use and cut them into carying length strips. Sew them all together so they are in one long piece.
Get your long strip and ruffle it.
Here’s how mine looked at this point.
Press the ruffle strip so it’s nice and flat.
Now pin the ruffle strip in a swirl pattern onto your shirt.
Then just sew it into place around all the edges.
Here’s the finished product.
I love this kind of shirt under a black blazer.
Have a lovely day!

So I’ve been churning in my head- how can I make these functional??
(Disney from Ruffles and Stuff made a cute version seen here)?
Get a dollar bangle at Target. Just like yesterday’s post!! Cover it in black fabric. I used a dupioni silk.
Get long layers of white fabric. I used chiffon. Fray check the edges so it doesn’t fray too much. You could fold it over, but I like how Chanel’s are slightly frayed.
After I finished gluing the ruffles to each side of the bangle, I got a piece of lack fabric and glued it on the inside of the bangle to make it look nice and clean.

this Vera Wang Silkor this other Chanel.
Cut the fabric the length of your bangle and wide enough to cover it all the way around. Hot glue it on one side. Make sure to pull tightly so it doesn’t pucker at all.
For an extra step, I covered the inside with this gold hem tape to cover the fabric that was folded over.
Now go make some one of a kind, couture statement bracelets!!(That cost a buck!) How great are these for gifts!! I’m going to be making LOTS of these for Christmas!

Attach more until they are in random swirls on the shirt.
I also added a small one to the pocket on the opposite side.
Right now I am knee deep in Christmas orders and Christmas presents. So this month I will be doing lots of creating, just not too many tutorials because of my very limited time. But I will be posting all my creations still. I hope you all are having a wonderful Christmas season!
