I needed a bit more than I anticipated. At least 40 squares per sleeve.

* NOTE: The edges of the chiffon I used for the sleeves is frayed more than the bag/shoes because I “tore” the fabric to give it that look. For the bag and shoes, I cut the petals out separately. See below. * Also NOTE: this is quite a long and tedious project.

    it’s fantastic! i actually thought about you this weekend b/c i saw some embellished shirts the other day in the store and i thought about buying them but didn’t want to spend the $$$ and i thought, “maegan could easily do a little diy with this.”

    oooh, very chic. I’m not sure if I could pull off the look with them on my shoulders, but I like the idea also for placing the petals around the collar. Gorgeous.

    Thank you so much for your warm comments, I really appreciate them. Recent miracle…a friend was told she would NEVER conceive…went through the process of adoption – waited 2 years and was expecting a child to be placed with them soon. I just saw her mother in law, they just cancelled the adoption process…she’s 3 month’s preggers :) She hasn’t told many cause she’s STILL in shock.

    Was this hand stitched or machine sewed? If it was done by hand.. that must of been a very long time. But I wonder how it would be possible with a machine…

    Advice to anyone considering ‘ruffling’ an item of their clothing- use a synthetic fabric that WON’T crinkle when washed- even silk chiffon can crinkle! I had some very light black cotton crepe (looks like silk chiffon but made from cotton) which I used to make ruffles a la Maegan on a boring black top- and thanks to Maegan I had a serious piece of couture that cost me nothing and looked AMAZING! But then I chucked it in the washing machine (I do this with everything- a prerequisite of all my clothes is they have to be SUPER EASY to look after) and I discovered that all the cute petal/ruffles had crinkled and shrunk up after washing!! So you can blast your ruffles with a hair dryer and try to iron them out with a hair straightener or iron like I did,which sort of works but not 100% effective, or you can use a synthetic chiffon in the first place and it will never crinkle or shrink.

    Thanks for being awesome Maegen your gratuitous outfit posts are not in the least gratuitous I love them an you!!

    So fabulous! She has another DIY that is absolutely to die for! Im going to make this today! I have the perfect shirt, and think Ill try petals made of some leftover scraps from the book cover project!I just found this DIY fashion blog, ...love Maegan and she does a fantastic job at translating looks on the runway in true DIY budget fashion. I love the look of her Petal Ruffle Sleeve Top which is easily done by sewing small strips of chiffon to a black t-shirt.

    it’s obvious that this is not a “diy”… the quality of the chiffron is different between the first step and the final!

    So,if you don’t have the ability to “cheat us” right, don’t do it at all

    ha!
