This refashion is both about shirts and about refashioning from a pattern. I think there is a lot to be said about refashioning from a pattern. It is very handy when the item you are trying to make is very far from the item you are refashioning. A good example of this is my t-shirt to retro baby shorts refashion from last year.
I do like wearing shirts and so does my husband. He both likes wearing shirts himself and he thinks I look nice in a shirt too. Therefore, he didn’t mind giving up an old shirt for this refashion.
This is the Ottobre Design pattern I used to refashion the shirt. It is from number 5, 2012.
Then I pinned the pattern to each side of the shirt and cut off the sleeves to the pattern together with the neckline. I didn’t cut up the sides, but instead unpicked the top 10cm from the sleeves down in order to add a fitting on the front.
I cut the sleaves after the pattern to make a more female sleave with 3/4 length and puff sleeves.
And finally the shirt is finished:
Please post a comment and share your latest shirt or pattern refashions with me. I would love to see them.
