Spiderman Shirt

Added a little girly touch to a Spiderman shirt. This shirt has been in my fix-it pile because of holes in the armpits. When I found out that my niece wanted to have a Spiderman party, I had to change this from manly to girly. I had to cut off the neckline and the long sleeves first.

I hope I succeeded! I tried to do a bit of serging, but a zig-zag is what you see. I hemmed the neckline and the sleeves, sewed up the holes, baste-stitched the neckline to pull the strings and formed ruffles. I then sewed the ruffliness in place, pulled out the basting stitches and this is what you have:

I wish I had time to add some ruffles to the bottom, but this needs to be going home with her tomorrow.

I used this technique found here at Obsessively Stitchy.
