Donatella from Inspiration & Realisation shows how she used silk chiffon to make over a plain t-shirt into a dressier version of itself. She adds raw edge bias strips to the arm and neck openings. Triangular inserts at the sides loosens the fit (it had been a bit too snug for her taste) and gives it a flared shape. You can find the tutorial on her blog.
