Gathered Collar Shirt Tutorial

While sitting in Chipolte the other day (yummm, love that place!), a little girl walked by wearing the cutest shirt. My thought? Du Du Du Dah – I can make that shirt!

With a men’s collared shirt from the thrift store and some thread, I give you the gathered collar shirt. It took absolutely no time to whip up, and I am thrilled with the results.

The best part? I finished it just in time for our oddly warm 67 degree day!
