Petal Shirt: A Tutorial. Make A Really Quick & Simple Blouse. So I got an email from Jane last week, linking to this top: “The one I tried on was shorter and not sheer. Can you show us how to make it? It looks SO beautiful on and it's a fucking square with a hole in it, that's it. A square folded in half, a neck hole cut out, and two short seams on the sides to hold it in place. Does that make sense? UGH! Why is it three hundred dollars!?!” It is three hundred dollars because they say it is! Dolce and Gabbana probably charged even more when they did this a decade ago for their S/S 2002 collection, which was when, as a freshman in college, I saw it and decided I had to have it.
You’ll need: A yard and a halfish of standard 45" wide fabric with nice drape. So, how much fabric to buy? Machine or hand-sew the two folded edges on both pieces of fabric before proceeding, as close to the inner folds as possible. Headhole: 13” Scye: 9.5” Very loose hip: 39” Machine or hand-sew next to, but not on, the top hem from each selvage to its respective pin. 5 Minute Halter Top. Seriously. This is so simple that it may even take you longer to pull out your sewing machine and set up than to actually make this top! How fabulous is that?! We found this idea here, and with the hot weather we've been having around here lately we thought now was the perfect time to whip one up!
What You Need: 1 large square scarf (or large square of material, hemmed on all sides)something to tie around your neck (cord, ribbon, necklace...we used a chain to add some sass!) Lay your scarf face down on your work surface so that it looks like a diamond. Sew across that edge to form a casing (not sure if the photo shows this very well...). Run your cord/ribbon/necklace through your casing and tie it around your neck. Then tie the corners on the left and right side around your back (if they are not long enough to tie around your back, simply sew on some fabric or ribbon to crate a longer tie). Ta-da!

Post by Raechel of www.raechelmyers.com So. I have a favorite shirt. I’ll be honest, it’s probably my favorite because it’s the most comfortable shirt I own, AND my husband bought it for me and he thinks I look cute in it. That’s really all I need. Oh, and it’s a great backdrop for a pretty necklace! That too. Anyway, I wear it with a long tank top, leggings and either boots or black Toms, depending on the weather. So, I worked this week on developing a 2T-sized version of my shirt. What you’ll need: The fabric piece I used was knit (you want a drapey fabric), and was 20″ wide and 34″ long. Also, you’ll need a sewing machine. Get your fabric piece laid out on your cutting board, folded on the top so it looks 21″x17″.
There. (That’s a fold on the top – you want your rectangle intact!) This might be a good time to tell you how to measure for a size other than 2T… How to measure for your own sizing: Width: Arms straight out, you want the sleeves to fall just on the hand-side of your elbow.
