Cardigan turned ruffle shirt

A few months ago i went to Costco and i found these wonderful cardigans made of a jersey knit material. However, because there are no mirrors at Costco i had to just expect they would be ok.. well... i never wore them and in the closet they sat. Until today :)
This is what the cardigan looked like before. i  didnt take pictures while i was making the first one because i was afraid it would not work out but the pink is the exact same style.
First step i did was cross the sides over each other.

Then all i did was sew a straight diagonal line down the seam. Backstitching the first stitch or two and at the end i just pulled the bobbin thread and watch the ruffles begin :) I simply knotted the thread off and viola! adorable shirt or pullover cardi.

hope ya like! have a wonderful thursday!
