Start with a CHEAP plain shirt... I love Old Navy. They had these for $3.
Next, Either cut off some of the bottom of the shirt, if it is long, or do like I did and use another scrap shirt in the same color. I had some hideous white polos in my closet from when I worked at Jo-Ann fabrics... I was not sorry to cut one of them up!
I decided to change up my neckline a little bit. I basically just cut off the shirt collar, then I was lazy and used liquid stitch to tack down the edges.
With your scrap shirt or whatever you use, cut three long strips of fabric, then tie the top, or use a safety pin and braid all the way to the bottom.
Tie knots at both ends, and then start attaching to the shirt with liquid stitch!
Finished product!!! A cute little accented shirt.
And then.. because you know I just can't help my self with accessorizing, I added these little rosettes. They are on a pin, so they don't always have to be attached!
