I wanted a new shirt. So I made one. I saw something like this on a friend and filed it away for using later. Here’s my version (Great Cheese Heather)
Making Waves Shirt

I took a plain shirt and sewed 1/4″ tucks. Then I sewed the tucks opposite ways every 1 1/2″ making “waves.”

One sides the waves go from hem up over the shoulder and back down to the hem. The other side has shorter waves.

Today I wore it with a scarf.

It has enough detail to wear it alone, but it’s not overwhelming when I wear it with an accessory.

I’m really happy with it. I think it looks so cool.¬†One tip I would say to sewing on top of a knit shirt is using a stretch needle so no holes are created in the fabric. I’ve tried sewing with a universal needle on knit and it ruined the shirt.

This is the should that has smaller waves. See how they just seem to disappear?
