My daughter needed a green shirt for a St Patricks day dress up day at Daycare, but the only one I could find is a boys shirt (but bonus is it was the last one left, it was her size and reduced to $3!). Any tips on girly-ing it up a bit, I was thinking of somehow gathering the sleeves, though I'm definitely a beginner sewer.ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1426320570.578662.jpg

Glitter? Draw a shamrock on the front in glue & cover in glitter (might be a tad messy though, glitter gets everywhere lol).
You could run a thread down the sleeve to gather it a bit? Or trim them to make it more of a ruffle?
Am just a beginner at sewing too

Why does it need to be "girly"? It's a t-shirt, t-shirts don't need to be 'girly' or 'manly'. They're t-shirts.
Want to decorate it with Saint Patrick's day type paraphernalia is a great idea (shamrocks, leprechauns etc with extra fabric, glitter, fabric glue/pens...), but making it 'girly' is not necessary. Gender stereotyping kids is not cool.

I don't see the need to do anything to it either...it's a T-shirt! There are some good suggestions from others, but personally (even if I wanted it 'girly') I'd just go with making the rest of the outfit girly...changing the shirt sounds like a lot of effort for a beginning sewer like me :P

I think with tights and a high wasted skirt with the shirt tucked in and then some nice green ribbon in her hair would be cute!

Maybe cut the sleeves and sew on some lace. You could get a cute shamrock picture and use fabric glitter glue on the front. What about stitching some green tule around the hem to form a skirt

I think to keep it simple you could sew a ribbon tied into a bow on the shoulders and find a cute material to cut into a shamrock to sew on the front. Or use fabric paint to paint a rainbow and a pot of gold at the end.
