WIMTWW: A Favorite Tee

I have several projects in the works... and a few of them may end up totally bombing, but I'm still trying to salvage them.  On my cutting table right now I have 5 dresses that aren't long enough for me to wear them as a dress (that whole height thing), they all need a fabric band added, but I need to find the right piece.  I also have 3 upcycles in progress.  One is at a stand still until I give it more thought.  The second is a men's dress shirt I plan to turn into a dress but I don't want it to look too much like this one.  I wear it all the time, it is so comfortable and I want another one, but not exactly the same.  The third is a men's polo upcycle that was interrupted by a particular 3-year-old who is in denial over how tired he is...

So I'm pulling out a favorite ruffle tee I made last year.  If you are a crafter, I'm sure you're well aware of Sachiko's blog Tea Rose Home.  And if you're familiar with her blog, I'm sure you've seen this tutorial of hers. 

Mine is pretty similar.  I didn't do the string, but other than that, I think I followed her instructions pretty much, my ruffles don't go down as far, not sure if that is a height thing or I didn't do as many rows.  It's been worn an awful lot.
I like it best with a cardigan.  I am thinking of making another one with more ruffles, I think that might help it for wearing by itself.

Peace be with you,

I'll be linking up to some of these parties, stop by and check them out!
