RRR School Shirt

What do you get when you cross your mother-in-law with a new hot pink "LOVE" shirt, a red apple, and "color safe" Clorox bleach? A peachy hot pink shirt with an apple stain and extra bleached out splotches giving it a tie-dye look. Now cross that with one frustrated Mom who must now decide what to do with the new school shirt and you get this...
I cut the front off the hot pink shirt and sewed it onto this shirt.
What's a shame is I already bought some black and white fabric for the blue shirt. The fabric pictured is from my stash. I figure I'll make some ruffle pants to match the shirt. It's also a shame that the orginial shirt was only worn twice for less then six hours total.

Way to make pink lemonade out of lemons!!!

Great save! I think a pair of ruffle pants will look great with the LOVE shirt.
