Peasant Shirt

I saw a cute peasant shirt on Pinterest and decided to try it. It was white and it was a PINTROCITY (pinterest fail). On the black shirt I marked with a piece of chalk where I would cut the second one, 2 1/2 inches in from the sleeve and 2 1/2 inches down from the neck line and connect the dots. The Pinterest shirt had you cutting about 2 inches past the sleeve and the sleeve was the shoulder...weird. First I bought a man's extra large shirt $5.00, I wear a woman's large, cut the neckline off, sew facing on the front and a button hole on the very front. Flip the facing to the inside, stitch down and string the ribbon through it. Cut the bottom edge of the sleeves off and the bottom hem of the shirt. Run a large zig zag stitch, one stitch off, one stitch on, pulling the fabric as you go and you will get these cute ruffles.
Now if it would only warm up enough to wear it.
