Shirt Refashion - Navy Ruffles

I saw this sweater re-fashion from Tatertots and Jello last week and thought "Hmmm... I have a red shirt and a navy blue scarf... I think I might try this one." Unfortunately, no matter how many different ways I tried to ruffle the scarf diagonally on the shirt, I couldn't get it to look right... I don't know why. So I decided to play it safe with cutting up the scarf  (the sides of the scarf has something that looks like tribal/floral print, and the center has small white polka dots... sorry, I wasn't able to take a "before" photo) to make 2 layers of ruffles around the neckline and all the way down the front.

I finished off with small white plastic buttons along the center between the 2 lines of ruffles (CONFESSION: the buttons were an afterthought... I needed something to hide the uneven space between the 2 ruffle columns *wink*).

Happy Monday to all of you! :)
