Put a Bow on it (or seven)

bowshirt back reducedI’m going through a bow phase. The tinier the better. I even have a pinterest board dedicated to them right now. So when I saw Asperge’s awesome shirt with bows down the back on BurdaStyle, I couldn’t help myself. I had a plain blue shirt that I bought at Target a few months ago sitting in my closet – I didn’t try it on beforehand and it ended up being way too big for me, especially in the bust area, so it got slated for transformation. It went together easily, I cut a significant chunk of fabric out of the upper back and then I used green scrap jersey to make the bows and bind the cut seems. Originally it was going to be 5 bows, but it was hanging off my shoulders so I took it two notches higher.
