DIY plain shirt into gathered, embellished tank top

Sewing with elastic thread is so much fun!  I did it recently with the side gathered shirt and then again here today.

This shirt was really easy.  I put elastic thread in the bobbin and blue thread in the needle.  I just sewed in loops and triangles all along the neckline.  Next, I cut off the sleeves and hemmed the holes to make a tank.  I cut 4 circles of different sizes and sewed them on top of each other into a flower, which I sewed to one shoulder.

That's it!  Just buy as shirt one size up to allow for shrinking at the gathers :)
