I refashioned an old men’s shirt into a summerly women’s shirt.
It was way too big and had discolorations at the collar and under the arms, but I liked the blue color and stripes.
So, I used a top as pattern, cut away the yellow parts and turned the shirt into a cute summer top.
I used the sleeves to make self-fabric bias binding to finish the neckline and armscyes.
The shirt had a back pleat. I liked the detail but the pleat didn’t lay flat. So I altered the back pleat making it more slanting.
Now I’m waiting for summer so that I can wear the shirt! 😀 (We took the ‘after’ pics yesterday – the first day which felt like spring.)
