If you read my blog regularly, you know that I love to refashion old clothes into cute new clothes! Mint green is my favorite color so I was happy when I found this old men’s polo shirt while cleaning out grandma’s house.

Holes & Yellow Stains

The shoulder and neck part was full of holes and it had yellow armpit stains. So I used just the bottom part of the polo for my new top – the hem is the original hem.

Seam Finish

I turned the raw edges of the neckline and armscyes under once – because knit fabric doesn’t ravel – and zigzagged them. Here’s a detail picture of a turned and zigzagged neckline of another of my refashioned T-shirts (there’s also an ongoing link party for refashioned T-shirts & recycled T-shirt crafts).

Leftover Fabric

I didn’t throw away the cut-off holey fabric. Instead I used it to make a T-shirt dog toy for my new GSD puppy – she loves it!

  1. What a great idea! With the heat we’ve been having this shirt would come in handy! Thanks for sharing with us at The Blogger’s Pit Stop! Roseann from This Autoimmune Life

  3. I know this is a year old, but I enjoyed it just the same–your new shirt looks great! I realized recently that men’s polo shirts are a great way to get shirt fabric at thrift stores. Guys usually wear polos for dressier occasions or work, so they are often in better shape than the regular t-shirts (besides not having giant logos on the front).
