For Make Something Monday, I decided to redo one of my husband's shirts. I really enjoy refashioning clothes. It's SO much fun, and it's FREE! (If you already own the clothes, anyway) This is a XXL button up that my husband doesn't wear any more.
I put the shirt on my dress form inside out, and buttoned it up. Then, I pinned away!
Thanks, Babe, for taking the pic! This is the only one that he was home for, so I couldn't use his mad picture taking skills on the rest of them.
I LOVE my dress form. It's a vintage adjustable dress form from the 1940s.
After I sewed up where I had pinned, I cut the extra fabric off. I really like doing it this way simply because if the shirt is too tight or I don't like how it fits, I can just rip out the seams, and redo it, without having to worry about losing fabric.
Yes, I had to stand on my bathtub to try to get a full pic. A girl has to do what a girl has to do...
I threw an oversized sweater over it, and I'll wear my boots with my leggings. Super cute and comfy! I actually like it a lot more than I thought I would! What do you think?
