Off Kilter Yet Chic Design

Need a little spice, feeling a little daring? Tired of plain and boring pieces in your wardrobe? Jazz it up or change it with a quick little adjustment. This asymmetrical design turns an ordinary t-shirt into a fun and interesting piece to wear, from plain to chic, and is the perfect project for the fashion-conscious girl. The idea and execution is from my fashion-forward, style-conscious 11 year old, aspiring fashion designer daughter, Emily. This is a very quick refashion project, five minutes, literally. Below is a self-explanatory and very easy to follow pictorial tutorial.

  3. Cool! This seems familiar. Did she have it on her blog once? I just saw a video on Youtube the other day about someone modifying t-shirts too.

  9. Hi Trudy, I just popped over from Over40. As a sewer and thrift shop browser, I enjoyed looking through your blogs and just may "borrow" some of your ideas, This t-shirt re-make, and the long blue skirt remake are great. Stop by for a visit.
