Man’s shirt refashion

  • Serger Pepper - Refashion July - Man's shirt to tank dress - and loose where I don't want to enfatize my curves

Wanna see a new refashion?

This man’s shirt was sitting in my refashion pile for a long time, coming from a thrifty shop near here, where you barter your old clothes with other’s.

I was in love with the simple pattern (not printed but dyed in yarn and weaved), the color and the soft cotton blend fabric , but, man, it was huge on me!

Let’s cut it and sew it and see what comes out…

So much better… don’t you think?

Wanna see the tutorial? Head on to Magda’s House of Estrela to see it in detail!

    I’m a bit disappointed. This is not a t-shirt. T-shirts are knit, not woven.

      Sorry for making you feel bad, Joanne! I agree with you, it’s a shirt, not a T-shirt… going to fix it right now!
      Thanks for the heads-up
