I just love this ruffled top from Mama Go Round who gives you a great tutorial on how to make your own ruffled top.

I am OBSESSED with this flutter flower shirt. I saw one like this in JCrew last year and it was a small fortune for a t-shirt…let’s get real. So now, you can make your own JCrew knock-off. What you’ll need are two matching t-shirts, matching thread, scissors, and a needle.
