I started with this too big for Big Ben shirt. I used simplicity pattern 2936 (which was 99 cents at an after Thanksgiving sale). After starting, I realized that one shirt didn't provide enough material, so I went to my refashion pile and salvaged another shirt, one that was a little too small for me. I used that second shirt for the flowery ruffle.
I'm pretty happy with the final product. However, as always don't look too close... I tend to take some shortcuts in my sewing and am by no means a sewing perfectionist!
