I had this blue t-shirt that I loved because it was a soft knit and a pretty heather blue. But it was boring and not cute. So, taking my inspiration from a t-shirt my sister-in-law was wearing I rouched it!
First of all, I loaded elastic thread in my machine. For my discussion of elastic thread, click here: I used a different machine, so the elastic thread was much more elastic-y. I adjusted that with a tiny screw driver and my bobbin holder.
Then I sewed a few inches up on both sides of the bottom hem. I didn't want it too short and show any skin, so I decided to sew about 5 inches. Important to measure so that the two lines are opposite each other.
It took me about 15 minutes!
